Supplied from my own collection.
This is a very scarce early issue light grey 1st cab Foden Wagon with a black chassis and red ridged wheels and cab side flashes. It has no mount block for a rear tow hook and no tank slots which were both not introduced until October 1948. An additional important point is that it has no casting support for the chain posts underneath as this was not introduced until January 1952. There is a spare tyre mounted to the chassis by a correct silver nut and bolt. Please note that a black nut and bolt were not issued for any 1st cab model. Finally, as an early release it has the black herringbone original tyres which remain pliable and a full ’20mph’ transfer on the rear left wheel arch.
A very hard model and colour variation to find in any condition, which must be one of the best examples around.
Fully light tested and no signs of any added touches.

The model is in very, near mint condition with only an occasional minor mark. A superb and rare model and the best I have ever had.
The wheels, tyres and base are very nice and the black grip tyres have no flats which remain pliable.
It has shiny axle rods and a nice shiny silver bed screw and silver nut and bolt below.
So often Foden & Guy lorries as premium pieces can come with touch up and repainted areas. This model has one very tiny added touch on the cab roof .
The correct early brown box is very nice, with a correct red and white top and side label. There is some age grubbiness now but it is a strong box. There is a small paper loss area to the end label and some price graffiti. A couple of tiny loss areas to the top label. There is no viewable end colour identification but on the base ‘M42’ is in black, though faded.
