Express Transport Tin Truck by Wells of England – Tin for Sale
Express Transport tin truck by Wells of England- Tin for sale
This is a model of Wells tin toys that we simply can not locate. We’ve scoured countless books and catalogs and we will just say it is rare & undocumented. BUT, send a catalog if you have one and we will be happy to attribute it. It is a prewar toy and likely production was curtailed for the battle with Germany in World War II.
It is a charming tin and a simple windup. Lithography is very colorful and original and the driver is ready for action. The tailgate opens and shuts and has a chain for deliveries. Wheels are fully lithographed tin and with windup is metal too. The mechanism works well for driving.
Early Wells toys in this period are extremely sought after and very tough to find due to wartime recycling.
