A dark blue blue constructional flatbed Dyson 8-Ton Trailer, with red wheelarches, black tyres and dull silver hubcaps produced by Shackleton Toys/Abbey Corinthian, probably in the 1950s.

Supplied ready-built, the trailer was designed to use nuts and bolts, to allow disassembly and reassembly like a real trailer.
