I note that many authors refer to the Guy 4-Ton Truck as released by Dinky Toys in 1947 as the Guy Otter. The Richardsons refer to the chassis as the Guy Vixen.
In my research for the recent Guy Warrior article I came across the following:
The Vixen Chassis was a 4-ton Chassis introduced in 1947, the same year as the launch of the Dinky Supertoys Guy.
The Otter was a 6-ton chassis and was launched in 1948.
The original Dinky Drawing referes to the model as a 4-Ton Truck.
It seems fairly clear to me that the correct basis for the Dinky Guy was the Vixen and not the Otter.
So where does the confusion come from? Any thoughts?
