All body features such as the engine louvres, doors, door handles and hinges are cast into the cab casting.

The tipping rear is hinged to the chassis casting with a crimped end pin and the operating rear gate is press fitted to the rear deck casting and carries a white on black "20" speed limit marking. There is no glazing.

The base plate is in black metal marked with "Dinky Toys" just behind the cab, "Made in England" just forward of this, "Meccano Ltd" and "Liverpool" on two lines just forward of the rear axle. The base is a plain, flat, type 3 casting with single round hole.

All wheels are black cast metal hubs with black rubber tyres and crimped axles.

This model was issued between 1946 and 1947, as evidenced by the solid chassis with single round hole. Earlier versions had an open chassis and the later versions had a closed chassis with cast in drive train and bumper. The trucks were sold in trade boxes and not individually packaged.
