781 Petrol pump station "Esso" 07 - 1955
This list is incomplete and contains some errors. An updated corrected list can be found further down this page.
This is my list of plain yellow boxes.
This list is certainly not complete, if you know other boxes of this type, please let me know by posting a photo of the box.
The earliest one seems to be the Bedford van "Kodak" ref. 480 and the last one the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith ref. 150 except for the Electric dairy van "N.C.B." Job's of 1960 which is a special model.
In early 1957, the DINKY TOYS logo was changed from straight to italic caracteres and the new plain boxes showed the new logo.
It is generally thought that these boxes were used when the art work was not ready for launching a model but there are exceptions to this rule.
â€¢ The 471 Job's Electric dairy van and the 669 U.S. jeep which are special models.
â€¢ The 230 Talbot Lago and 234 Ferrari which had been issued in 1953 and packed in boxes dated 1957.
All comments and additions welcomed as usual.
