The Dinky Dublo Morris Pickup.
One of the early Dinky Dublo models introduced in December 1957 and shown on the back of that months Meccano magazine. Also advertised in the June 1959 Meccano Magazine for 1/6.
The Morris Minor pickup featured as the second in the initial batch of models to be released. This 2 3/16 inch model came in crimson red, with smooth grey wheels. The cheese grater grille on this model indicates that the design was based on the mark 1, pre-1954 version, of the Morris Minor pickup. The original cost of 1/9 was reduced to 1/6d by June 1959. Ultimately, the model was withdrawn in 1960.
The grille of the mark 1 pickups and vans was replaced by a slatted grille in both mark 2 and three versions of the Morris Minor, as in the Royal Mail van (068). In 1970, the British Motor Corporation (BMC) ceased production of Morris Minor vans and pickups.
