Models of Yesteryear Y-12/5; 1937 GMC Van Models of Yesteryear

Scale: 1:45

Box notes: "Based on the T14 G.M.C. 126" (3200mm) wheelbase chassis, the 3.76 litre engine developed 86 brake horsepower at 3500 rpm. Load capacity was 1 ton (1016kg), and the body was British built by Bonnallack & Sons." This was a big van - the 126" wheelbase is almost as long as the extended 130 Land-Rovers that have a full four seater cab and the long load-bed off the 110. Looking it up on the Internet the T14 seems best known as a pickup and was the first pickup produced by GM; judging by the number of websites all around restoring them it seems like a popular one too.

The first release of the Models of Yesteryear van was black in the livery of Goblin, a UK vacuum cleaner maker, the first releases had a grey roof, later switching to all black. You will also see it in cream and green in Baxter's Soup livery, There are two versions of headlamps used on these two vans, cone shaped or acorn shaped. The next release was blue/black/red with 'Goanna' graphics, for Goanna Salve, a well-known known Australian curative preparation; 'the Australian Bush Remedy'. The Goanna vans all have cone headlamps. All of these versions are very easy to find and values are negligible.

After the core Models of Yesteryear range came to an end the subsequent owners of the brand re-used the casting many times over.

Boxes: All the core MOY releases are in J type boxes
