MILK TANKER

In May 1962 a little capsule range of Corgis was released extolling the virtues of milk. There was this tanker, a Karrier van and an ERF lorry & trailer loaded with churns. There must have been a campaign going on somewhere. A bit spooky though that all of those marques have now gone, and no-one's promoting milk as a health drink any more.

This old wagon is looking really good for its age and is hiding a secret, a secret agent no less. That Swiss registration plate on the front of the cab belongs to the James Bond Aston with the revolving plates. There was a child somewhere, once who owned both.

The Bedford Milk Tanker with the S Type Big Bedford cab was released in 1962 and replaced in the range with the Bedford TK version pulling the same trailer in 1965. Not that many of these were sold so it is a hard to find item nowadays and values are high. There are no listed variations.
