Dinky 660 Mighty Antar Tank Transporter

The Dinky Mighty Antar Tank Transporter. Released June 1956, priced at 17/11. The box changed to the familiar blue and white striped in November 1956. Windows were added towards the end of 1960, by which time the price had dropped to 13/11. After windows were incorporated, the price rose to 14/6. Shown also is the last issue of this famous model. It has windows, and a modified trailer that was re-designed to accommodate the 908 Mighty Antar Transporter with Transformer. The modifications included an additional tab and bar to support the transformer, and tie-down protrusions underneath. Painted military green, the trailer replaced the original in the last year of production, 1964. With the re-designed trailer, it became detacheable from the tractor unit, a feature that was not possible with the earlier issues. The model's last catalogue appearance was in the August 1964 issue when it was priced at 15/6. This was a very popular model as shown by the price decrease over a span of eight years. Based on a Thornycroft vehicle and Sankey semi trailer.
