Before continuing on and on in the New Arrivals thread, I open this one in order to keep the information on the car transporter in the right place. I have no spectacular new information on short notice but I wanted to show two publicity pictures on which the six rivets (well, half of it) are shown:
The pre-announcement in the 1953 UK catalogue - the introduction in MM of June 1953 just did not show them anymore.
A 4 page leaflet of 1954, the Flemish and French Belgian versions shown here.
My examples, the third showing the new, higher box 'With Detachable Loading Ramp' (text not seen here), accommodating the Loading Ramp box as well.
In the March 1954 Meccano Magazine the Toyman - trying to compensate for the still wanting loading ramp - made his own.
And finally a view inside the box with packing pieces present.
There is also the early all-medium blue version - some early ones in the early 1950s dark blue picture-less lid-box - and the latest one with windows. The Meccano construction system also had a Pullmore Car Transporter as an example to build, but I cannot find the picture at this moment - for others to find ...
Kind regards, Jan
