Vehicle model: Antar
Dinky 660 Mighty Antar Tank Transporter
The Dinky Mighty Antar Tank Transporter
Released June 1956, priced at 17/11. The packaging changed to the familiar blue and white striped Dinky Supertoys box 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.
