The Dodge Royal Sedan is made by Atlas so a repro box will come with the model.

Sometimes you can find original boxes for sale on EBay or I have even found seller's abroad selling repro boxes that you just can't find anywhere else!

You can check this guy on eBay out. He as the 191, what color did you want
www.ebaystores.com/DRRB-Reproduction-Box-Shop
You have four choices, $13.24 each and I assume shipping costs.

DRRB (Rob Barlow) makes excellent boxes. I have bought a few in the past and the are absolute quality

Chaccamacca, not sure what your referring to? The box you show looks to me like an original Dinky. DinkyDi was referring to the Atlas Boxes that come with their toys. I was referring to a reproduction box maker in Europe, I believe. I don't understand your question.

I should add that DRRB makes his own boxes and he does many brands of toy boxes. Check out the link above that I gave and you will see.
Theo, I have not bought any from DRRB but if you say they are a quality box I may just buy a few off him.

<p>Nobleco, i did not know what brand Spider means. Mayby i could help him because i have some DVD's with prints from boxes.</p>

Re: missing repro boxes 1 year, 6 months ago #11

I see. All the names and numbers of the toys he was asking about are Dinky Toys. I also have a CD for Boxes and it covers many brands but does not include the ones on his list so I could not help him out but suggested a box maker I know of.

<p>NO, please do not post the picture of the box here. If you want to get it to him that is what the PM system is for. As he has not been in to see if he has received any answers to his post I would assume he does not care or has found them elsewhere.</p>
<p>I would not waste your time.</p>
