Attached are a series of photographs of this model. At the end I have asked a question, in fact I have asked many questions and I hope someone can answer them for me. As far as I can ascertain, Australia was never a commercial recipient of the products of the French factory. Certainly I never saw them with me living "in the bush" or "out in the province", but that does not mean that a small quantity were imported and sold in the capital cities.
I presume this model is one of the early issues as it does not have a driver. I have also not unwrapped whatever is inside the grease-proof packaging. Perhaps I should reward myself by doing so!! :laugh: :laugh:
The last two images are the ones pertaining to my question. You will note that "GMC 2 1/2 TON" has been added as a sort of sticker. Is this normal, or has some previous owner of this model added this for some reason?
Lastly, I presume the 1/55 reflects the model's scale, however there are numerals at the end of the sticker which states 63. Does this reflect the year the model was released, 1963? Were these numerals amended each year the model was in production?
