VANGUARDS 1/43 FORD THAMES TRADER BOX VAN



Produced between 1957 and 1965, the all-new forward control Ford Thames Trader range covered load capacities from 2 to 5 tons and was offered with petrol or diesel 4-6 cylinder engines, the latter being the first ever Ford developed and manufactured diesel units. Many variants were available including tippers, flat-beds, tankers and articulated tractor units, but this particular model features a box van body on a Thames Trader 5 ton chassis.

The Thames Trader comes as a box van, first in the familiar bright red of Brooke Bond Tea, the decoration on the sides promoting PG Tips with their familiar chimpanzee.
