DINKY TOYS: POLICE LAND ROVER


A natural inclusion in the range was a police version, although it took until 1978 to make an appearance. The model is very dark blue, with the same lift-off hardtop as used on the Bomb Disposal Unit, but moulded in white plastic. It has a roof mounted beacon and 'Police' stickers. A plastic policeman is included. The towing hook, featured on all earlier Land Rovers except the Fire Appliance, is omitted from the Police version.
