Some photos made of my maroon/fawn Big Bedford Lorry. A good and boxed example, which I reshod with new (but original) tyres yesterday, because the originals were browned and brittle. In my eyes this model, which I have owned for 25 years already, made a revival and looks like new again, so I made new photos for my catalogue.
Having this example in hands again after a long time, the numbering strikes me. The box is a 408 (of 1956), the fawn rear, however, has the early pre-1954 number 522 cast in, besides, showing clearly a smaller 5 and bigger 22. The red chassis shows a small rectangular raised cartouche. What was there initially? Kind regards, Jan
