A very rare one.
This is an hybrid pre / post war model bought in a boot sale last week-end in Brittany.
Smooth hubs, white tyres and closed rear windows. It could even have been made in 1941 before the factory stopped making toys. Was the die made before or during the war ? When was the real Bedford designed ?
It is already known in red with black smooth hubs and black tyres (see Keith post February 10, 2006 above).
So we now have the following variations :
â€¢ Blue body, smooth black hubs, black or white tyres. Very first models made in 1945.
â€¢ Red body, smooth black hubs, black tyres.
â€¢ Red or blue body, black ridged hubs with smooth black tyres with roof reinforcement to attach the loudspeakers of model 34 c - 492 "Loudspeaker van.
â€¢ Red body, red ridged hubs, smooth black tyres.
Are there any more for example a blue body with blue hubs ?
