Notes

A beautiful example of this second type Foden with a deep violet blue cab and chassis, rare burnt orange back, paler blue ridged wheels, black radial tyres. Such a fresh, shining paint finish on this unused truck in all original condition, issued during 1952-53:

Brightest baseplate too:

Minute trace of a rub on the cab roof, and a few marks at a couple of wheel arches, as is nearly always the case – this truck has certainly not been played-with. One raidial tyre has a small slightly malformed section.
The mid-blue, paper label box is intact and fresh – the colours have lost none of their vibrancy. Exceptional. Faint factory stamp ‘B’ denoting cab colour at a short lid end. Period price nearby.

Nice to see the original packing card piece still present too.
A special, scarce Foden – and a rare find in this condition.
