Models of Yesteryear Y-5/4; 1927 Talbot Van Models of Yesteryear

Scale: 1:47

Based on the 1927 14 horse power Talbot chassis, this van was supplied with a custom built body, to accommodate the buyers needs. This enabled the tradesmen of the 1920's and 1930's to have a speedy and versatile means of delivery for their goods.

There are millions of these - literally, most of them worth nothing because they are so common, it was produced in a range of colours and liveries from 1978 to 1989.. As ever there are some which are harder to find and fetch a (small) premium as a result. Look out for Wrights Coal Tar Soap with a dark brown roof and Nestlé's Milk with a black roof. Unusual for a MOY to have opening rear doors.

There's a story behind the Lipton's Tea version. It was put into production before permission was sought to use the Royal crest, which was refused. The crest was removed for later releases and collectors rushed out to get the deleted version with the crest and squirrel them away against the day it became valuable. So many were put away that very few suffered the usual attrition from play and consequently they not worth any more than any other version.

It is very popular with the code 3 repainters and refinishers. Unlike some of the MOY models these code 3s do not get very good prices, mainly because they are so easy to do - a rub with acetone (nail polish remover) gets rid of the original tampo printing and a new set of transfers is applied. There is no painting or remodelling required. I've shown some examples below of both code 2 and code 3 versions.
