Made also for the British Army as Bedford MK, the Bedford made TK model that first rolled out in 1959 and continued to be produced until 1986. The model also had a tractor version.
This metal scale model is a rendition of the original DINKY TOYS, a brand first sold in 1934. This specific Tipper model was first produced in 1964 and it was so much of a success with it's tilting body that it continued to be produced for seven full years until 1971.
The manufacturer has tried to recreate the old-world magic by retaining the same features on each metal model as well as its box.
Dinky Toys were sold in India until 1955 when they were imported. Then in 1963 Meccano (owners of the brand) sold their factory to a firm in Calcutta called S. Kumar & Co. who started producing them locally. But because the finishing of these products were so poor they were sold as NICKY products.
