Quality Dinky trucks are a perennial favourite among the collecting community, as shown in the recent auction at Lacy, Scott & Knight (which you can read about online) and now we've just been sent the latest hammer prices for the Bamfords Toy and Juvenalia sale on 10th May and, guess what, Dinky trucks are among the top lots!

In fact, the first two lots in the auction were a sign of things to come and it all kicked off with a Dinky Supertoys 501 Foden Diesel 8-wheel Wagon (seen to your right) with dark blue cab and silver flashes to the side, first type radiator, dark blue wagon body, black chassis and dark blue ridged hubs.

The model came in its original plain box with red/white illustrated label on the lid. Estimated at £150 - 250, it nudged just over the top end at £260.

From there things only got better and it was swiftly followed by a Dinky Supertoys 502 Foden Flat Truck with pale blue cab, dark blue flashes to the sides, first type radiator, pale blue flat truck, dark blue chassis and dark blue ridged hubs. Again, it came in its original box but unlike our previous piece, this model kept on truckin' over its £200 - 400 estimate to achieve £750!

The terrific truck prices continued throughout the early part of the auction, a Dinky Supertoys 905 Foden Flat Truck with Chains with green cab, chain and green flat truck made £120; a Dinky Supertoys 903 Foden Flat Truck with Tailboard featuring a violet blue cab and chassis and orange flat truck realised £110; a Dinky Supertoys 942 Foden 14-Ton Tanker in dark navy blue with red and white tanker sold for £110 and finally, something saucy (!), a Dinky Supertoys 923 'Heinz' Big Bedford Van meant business at £190. You can see pictures of all these below.
