This Foden 1st cab tail board lorry is a rare issue believed to be only released for about one year in 1954-55 in Brunswick green cab and chassis with a green bed and ST wheels with black ST tyres. It has a mould block and houses a painted large rear tow hook. The casting now holds the axle rods and no longer retained by metal clips. Also the casting supports chain bosses for the chain lorry. Tank slts are also within the casting to support a petrol tanker body.

The condition of this rare piece is near mint with a superb overall presentation. There are some chips in the usual places around the wheel arches, also back of the tailboard and thereafter occasionally around the model. The bed is hard to find a mark. The cab roof only the slightest of marks. The wheels, tyres now hardened and base are superb with no tyre flats.
So often Foden & Guy lorries as premium pieces can come with touch up and repainted areas. This model has no identified added touches and has been fully light tested..
Such a rare model and great colour.
A very hard and rare colour variation to find in any condition. This is a bright and fresh example.
The correct late blue box with full wrap over orange and white label is bright. There are some age marks and rubs now. The blue box top card is superb. The box base is also bright and not faded with a little scuffing mainly to the short side edges. Still a superb box, and no damage. On one end is a faded now ‘G’ to denote model colour inside.
