One of the many variations on the Commer PB 15cwt van Corgi was churning out in the mid 60s. Don't get me wrong, I really admire this well crafted little van and there are loads of them to admire.

The Milk Float has three guises. There is the straightforward No.466, buy it in a box by itself version with a fixed rear body, then there is the one with the swappable back body from the Constructor Set and last of all, probably at the end of the production run, came a code 2 promotional model for the Co-op - who at the time had the biggest doorstep milk delivery fleet in the country. The Co-op milk float was I think only available by mail order and was part of a little range which also had a van with filled-in sides and a Scammell articulated truck. All three in the same pale blue and white Co-op livery.

The Co-op version generally has cast hubs, the others have spun hubs - but I don't know if this is a universal rule. The Constructor Set version should have a milkman figure with it.

These are not that scarce and values tend to be fairly modest, the Co-op van gets a nice premium over the others and if boxed will be in a plain mailing box.
