A very rare green lead cast Dinky Toys Wakefield Oil Van 28m, first casting.

This is the very first, "1920's-style" version of the van, dating from 1934-35.

It has a silver grille, metal wheels, and the sides are lettered "WAKEFIELD / Castrol / MOTOR OIL" in red text with thin black outlining, with "Castrol" in larger cursive text.

The van used the Hornby Modelled Miniatures 22d Delivery Van moulding, which was discontinued the following year.
