1157 Ford Esso Petrol Tanker

100 GBP
This is essentially 1152 but with a Ford tilt cab replacing the Mack one. Introduced in 1976 together with Gulf and Aral variations (and possibly more that I don't know about) it remained in the catalogues until 1981 but during that time underwent a few detail changes.

This is the quite hard to find edition that has a red interior and red-painted FORD letters on the front of the cab.

It is in immaculate condition, only removed from its packing once for the photos. The cellophane is excellent and the original piece of card for the front section is also still there. The box is like new, as is the model.
