Dinky Toys Range Rover

Dinky Emergency Vehicles

In many ways this is a better model than the Corgi Vigilant Range Rover - the rear tailboard certainly works better as a piece of modelling - but on the later releases the Speedwheels just ruin the look of the thing, earlier models with the Spot-On wheels look so much better. The quality of the modelling is definitely better on this one than many of its Dinky contemporaries.

Dinky made the Range Rover Ambulance from 1973 to 1978, there are no listed variations.

Dinky added the civilian Range Rover to the range in 1970. In 1972 the cast Spot-On wheels were replaced with Speedwheels. The colour can be bronze with blue, red or white seats, yellow with red seats or black with red seats. The ones to look for are black or yellow. It was deleted in 1981

The Fire Chief version was made from 1971 to 1978, it can be found in plain or metallic red, wheels are cast on early releases and Speedwheels later on

The Police Range Rover was made from 1971 to 1981, early releases have cast wheels, later releases have Speedwheels, there is a selection of road warning signs in the boot
