Really nice. Unfamiliar trucks for me though.

I’m a sucker for a good car carrier. Where do I get one ?
They are several available on e-bay, usually from Spanish or French sellers. Usually between US$ 65.00 and 80.00 + shipping. I held off on buying until I found a lower than average total price.

Here is one I've been yearning for for a long time. They pop up on ebay, but the fact that they have crossover appeal with model railroaders and PRR collectors means the prices tend to be a bit inflated. I found this one at a toy show this weekend with boxes and COA for just $25.00. It took some time to negotiate the price down, but it was worth it.

They still use trucks like this today. I imagine they were more important back when Rail was king.

Cool find. Looks like a Matchbox.

For the record, this is a 1954 model, not a '56.

Some Ford Truck Matchups from my 2019 Model Census

Oldest and Newest: 1929 Model AA from Whitebox and 2018-up Transit Custom by Greenlight.

2019 was a strong year for Ford Trucks in my collection.

Four new F-Series trucks. The 1960 model looks a bit too big.

Three Transits acquired last year.

Some Ford big rigs. If I had bought the brown LTS first, I probably wouldn't have bothered with the blue one.
