Thanks Gary, I’m looking forward to adding that.

I’m wondering if IXO got the year wrong. The Vailliant sponsorship seems to link more with the mid-70’s ? Of my Le Mans cars, this 1975 Porsche 911 seems the best match.

Very possibly Ian as the LP series of trucks were discontinued in 1975 , and looking at this next picture , it shows dates on the trailer up to 1974 so I would guess they had this around 1975/76 although it could be as late as 1978

Thanks Gary

I think by the 1980's Kremer had moved on to a newer set up, though I'm not sure which one of these came first :

I'd be all over that Jager transporter if they made it

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Gary, there is potentially another transporter IXO could consider.....the Dick Barbour Porsche 1980 Transporter.

I'm no truck expert, but could this be same as the 1979 Peterbuilt 352 announced by IXO (albeit without the twin rear wheels):

If they start making American style Transporters like Ian showed then I am in big trouble. :lol:

So, is the Vaillant transporter historically correct or not?

Luc, so far we've only seen pictures of the actual transporter, so we need to wait and see what IXO's model looks like. However, IXO have already released the cab of the 1970 Mercedes LPS 1632 as a stand alone model so we have some idea of what it might look like.

Image

This throws up some question marks....for example the Kremer transporter has its headlights in the grill rather than set into the bumper and the shape of the front wheel arches appear to be squared off on the tip. I'm hoping IXO will correct these things, but I'm half expecting that they won't and we'll just get the standard casting in Kremer colours.

Another one I would buy in a heartbeat .
The Ixo Peterbilt model is the same cab except, as you pointed out, its on a more common 6x4 chassis whereas Barbours truck was a shorter 6x2 chassis


Regarding the Mercedes and the headlight placement , well its simple......Ixo have got the model number wrong because its not an LP1632 but actually an LPS 911 (appropriate for a Porsche team eh :lol: ) . Its about the same age from around 1975 but this was a slightly lighter duty cab compared to the 1623 which was the big boy of the LP range at the time

I decided to email IXO about this last night in the slim chance we might get a correct model. No answer yet, but if I hear anything I’ll let you know.

Hope they rework the tanks on the left side of the tractor chassis to match the real truck as well.
