Here is a Liberty Classics 1928 Chevy truck.

I am still researching the authenticity of the Amoco livery.
The company was around in the thirties, but was this logo ?

Regards, Dave L.

Detail on this model is pretty good.
The front is especially well done.

Black radiator insert, clear headlight lenses, radiator ornaments,
and the huge front bumper (authentic) are all there.

I really like these Liberty Classics '28 Chevys.

Regards, Dave L.

This photo suggests that

the AMOCO GAS logo is OK for this model.

"I do have quite a few, but I have never counted.
It started innocently enough,
with the one little Studebaker in the photo above

David

It must be time to do a stocktake.

It would be interesting to know
how large your collection of vehicles is.

I'm guessing sixty five vehicles ?

Well Peter,

You know how many diecast vehicles are enough...

ONE MORE THAN YOU HAVE !! :shocked:

I haven't added any new vehicles for quite a while.

I am working on expanding my bookcase,
by adding some more shelves,
so I can unpack more for display.

Regards, Dave L.

This Ford Model TT model was offered by The Yorkshire Co.
in Bell Telephone green, and this red that had stickers for PP&L
(Pennsylvania Power & Light).

The model appears to have a Field Co. optional cab and bed.

I've identified over forty companies that made bodies and beds,
for Ford Model Ts and the truck version Model TTs.

Regards, Dave L.

Here's a photo from earlier in this Thread,
showing the two body styles, and the two different beds,
The Yorkshire Co. used on the TT.

I've only ever seen the green and red versions.

Regards, Dave L.

Here's another Ertl Model T in the collection.

The back cargo carrier is authentic,
and was available from after-market sources.

Ertl put green wheels on the model.

It had promotions,
but I don't recall what they were.

Regards, Dave L.

I put a plastic bed on this T.
Ford actually offered this configuration in 1926.

But after-market beds were available,
years before the Ford offering.
