Having more or less got caught up with my backlog of press releases, time to get back to Bob’s fabulous collection. Don’t know why I only have one shot of this 1926 Model T half ton delivery van, but I’m guessing it was stuck in a corner (there are a LOT of vehicles in a small space) and that was the best I could do. According to the information sheet next to it, this particular truck was the one that the Danbury Mint used to base their diecast Model T trucks on. I can’t find anything to confirm that, but here’s a webpage reviewing one of their 1925 Model T trucks (don’t seem to be any from 1926). I did get a tad distracted while searching for the 1926 Model T by this review of their 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Saloon – James Bond, 007 version diecast. Alas, discontinued. They don’t seem to be doing diecast cars at all at the moment.
