DG08003b, Model T Ford Tanker, PBF, Bureau of Fire Service Truck

SKU DG8003b white roof


Out of stock

This model has a white roof which was incorrectly fitted at the factory. Some models did leave the factory and ended up in Italy but the majority of the stock was sold to a Shropshire company for conversion into Code 3 model, as it happens they were not converted but released during April 1986 with the white headboard tampo printed in black (extracted from The Lledo Collectors Guide, The Millennium Edition). The model shows signs of pitting, to the front and the window area.
