Another outing for the old Bedford S type 'Big Bedford' cab unit this time with a tanker trailer in 'Mobilgas' livery. This trailer was to survive the switch to the TK cab and to appear as a milk tanker and later as a military fuel tanker right into the late sixties. It's a nice piece of Fifties US-influenced styling.

The Big Bedford petrol tanker was released in 1959 and remained in the range until the tractor unit was replaced by the TK in 1965. The one to look out for is a blue and white Dutch export model in Shell Benzeen livery, they are spectacularly valuable.

Mine is OK-ish. It is original and un-messed with apart from the tyres which were contemporary but the wrong sizes when I got it. I've since replaced them with new ones in the correct size. Playwear is acceptable - I won't be looking to replace this one.
