BEAST CARRIER

WITH 4 CALVES

The Beast Carrier saw duty again as the back body for the Dodge Kew Fargo Cattle Truck and appears to share a chassis with the farm tipper trailer - good economical thinking from Corgi! The Beast Carrier was first released in Gift Set GS33 in March 1965 and got its solo release in November of the same year. It remained in the catalogue until 1972. There are no listed variations.

This example is a relatively new acquisition for my collection, it replaces one where the calves and the netting were missing. It is very unusual to find one with these still in place that is not a 'mint-in-box' job. There would once have been a cardboard inner with holes for the calves feet to hold them steady.
