494 Bedford Tipper Truck with original box
This is the revised tipper truck, taking over from the ERF that had been around since the 1950s.
Always popular models because you could fill them with stuff and go around dumping it elsewhere but that also had the result in many getting pretty badly worn over the years and you’ll find plenty going cheap now.
This is a totally original example that has never really been played with and looks like new. It also has its original box and not many have that these days! It features the smart, later style commercial wheels that began to appear on many of the trucks and lorries.
It is also a great example of Corgi making use, once more, of the parts of other models. The tipper is, of course, the same as it always was and the cab is the familiar Bedford one, including those lovely mirrors! They are also complete with the reflective pieces still in place.More images
