SCHUCO 1/43 MERCEDES-BENZ L 319 PORSCHE SUPPORT VAN


The Mercedes-Benz L 319 was the company’s first delivery van design after WWII, premiering in 1955. It was designed to carry payloads from 1.6 to 1.9 tons and was available in a variety of configurations: Delivery van, small bus, pickup and even as a cab/chassis for customer applications. Mercedes applied its usual engineering prowess and innovation to create a forward cab design with a slightly rounded, enclosed structure, creating a load-bearing box. The mechanical design was intentionally simple with solid axles and leaf springs, and options for gas and diesel engines from the Mercedes passenger car program. The L 319 was a huge commercial success with over 120,000 built when it was replaced in 1968 by the T2 series. Shop here
