MATCHBOX: GENERAL SERVICE LORRY



This is the miniature Matchbox number 62 General Service lorry, which is a model of the 1952 AEC Militant fitted with a cargo body. The small but charming model of a troop/cargo carries is undeniably an AEC. These large six wheel drive trucks were incredibly powerful and were capable of pulling almost anything. Various bodies were fitted to the chassis and tankers were a common sight as were lorry-mounted Coles cranes.

I used to have the full set of these.
I loved the Matchbox miniatures when I was a kid. I still have this one packed away somewhere.
