I just received a recent purchase of a 22c Motor Truck, and am delighted by the wonderful overall condition it is still in. In checking the various sources, it appears that this first appeared around 1935, and was then re-issued after the war, probably in late 1945 or 1946. It is stated that the rear window disappeared in 1947, so this pre-dates that. Of interest, it also has the original white tires, in great shape, and also what appear to be pre-war smooth wheels, with a shiny finish, and also has the black wings or fenders. I could see no information on when the black wings were dropped. I am also showing another 22c, from a little bit later time, still with rear window, but black tires and smooth, non-ridged hubs, but finished in more of matte black instead of shiny. It is also interesting to note that the earlier one also has quite a bit more overspray on the underside, but I would imagine that is a difference dependent on whom was doing the spraying at that moment, rather than a change.
A really nice little model....I happen to like the black wings and the white tires.
