Comments

Model appeared in 1967 and removed in 1972 according to the Moko Lesney Matchbox Toy Collecting website.

Opening rear door. Flaking cab paint. Scale given in the catalogue: 1/86.

Modifications

Wiking wheels mounted (rear paired) and painted, because entirely grey at the origin. This required milling of the wheel arches.

History

It is a model of the GMC L series built from 1960 to 1966. This is probably an L4000. These are perhaps the first tilt cabs. It’s an American truck; it’s very doubtful that some existed in Europe (except for the US contingent in Berlin) and a fortiori in France.
