This is the first serious redesign of the car transporter trailer since 1957 and the exchange of a Bedford tractor unit for an American Ford item. By 1966 I think this Ford was pretty old anyway so an odd choice for Corgi - but a nice model, well detailed and well executed even though those mirrors and horns were so vulnerable. The trailer is a bit more realistic too and the moveable chocks are a nice detail.

The Ford Articulated Transporter was introduced in 1966 and remained in the Corgi range to 1969. There are no listed variations.
