Unfortunately, Autocult did not alter the Thames 400E flatbed model they already had in their model serie (with the original 'short' wheelbase, correct for a regular model). They just put a different paint.
Thanks for the background JPGP.

I'm excited to see that the Brazilian Truck partwork series has issues a 1980's Ford Cargo (Cola Cola truck) and 2000's Ford Cargo (sugarcane crop truck). Right now prices on e-bay are too high, but they may come down. Another bit of good news for me is that Whitebox is now reissuing models from the Brazilian Truck partwork series. No Fords yet, but a Cargo would be great!

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Great looking models of iconic trucks in the Southern US! Almost bought one of the 3 in 1:1 back in '86 but opted for a Pontiac Fiero GT. Today I own both of those vehicles in 1:43.

Would love to add the 'Big' Bronco shown but wish other colors were offered? Already have the Chevy K5 Blazer and Dodg Ramcharger by NEO and BOTH are this same white/red color scheme :evil: BB

IXO has also do a casting for the 78-79 Bronco. Right now it has only been released in a Mexican partwork series (which is weird because these Broncos were not sold their new), but eventually there should be a Premium X version which I think may be released in blue and white.

If you rip the sleeves off Jeff, where do you keep your pack of ciggies?
