This model is the Dinky 022c-H-1 Bedford Motor Truck in Red.

The model features no opening parts, all features are cast into the body casting. At the front the grille is picked out in silver. The cab shows cast body lines, foot steps, and doors, and has a window opening at the rear of the cab. The rear body has cast planking sides. There is no interior or glazing on this model. The front and rear wheel arches, and running boards are details molded into the lower part of the body casting.

All wheels are of the shaped cast metal type - solid one piece cast metal hubs with a separate black "rubber" tyre on a steel crimped axle.

There is no base plate on this model. However, the underside of the body casting carries the legend Meccano at the centre top and "Made in England" at the centre bottom. "Dinky Toys" is cast parallel to the rear of the rear axle on two lines.

This item was issued between 1935 and 1940, evidenced by the open rear window opening. Early versions had open rear windows on the cab, later versions had a closed rear cab. The lorries were sold in trade boxes and not individually packaged.
