MATCHBOX REGULAR WHEEL NO.51A - ALBION CHIEFTAN



A yellow Albion Chieftan Flat bed Truck with a pale brown load (51a) had ‘Portland Cement’ decals on the cab doors in a circle and on the truck sides in two lines. Very quickly the decals on the sides of the truck were increased to read, ‘Blue Circle Portland Cement’. Both the truck and the load were subject to colour shades, generally becoming lighter as time went on. All four tyres of wheels were fitted, with both the grey and rarer silver plastic wheels even appearing in two sizes.
