This model is the Dinky 30pb-G-1 Studebaker Petrol Tanker in red with "Motor Oil Esso Petrol" decals on either side of the rear body and with silver tanker caps. It is a RESTORED item.
The model has the grille, front and rear bumpers, headlights, and bonnet handle in silver. The cab door handles and tanker caps are also picked out in silver. There is no glazing.
The base plate is in black metal marked with "Dinky Toys" in the top centre, "Made in England" in the middle centre, and "Meccano Ltd" in the bottom centre. It is now held in place by two tiny self tapping screws which replace the original machined rivets.
All wheels are red cast metal hubs with black rubber tyres on steel axles.
This model was originally issued between 1953 and 1953. This restored item was done around 2010.
