Y6 - 1 1916 AEC 'Y' TYPE LORRY
ORIGINAL VEHICLE

ISSUED  1957

DESCRIPTION

Scale 1:100

I love this small model as it epitomizes the small range models created by Lesney. First issues or possibly preproduction versions were issued in various shades of light blue and over the years the radiator shell was either silver or gold. If this model is left out in sunlight it will fade to a blue shade from the normal grey colour but is easy to differentiate between a genuine blue and a sun faded one. The model can be found in 2 shades of grey, light and dark, although I have one in a sandy shade. The dark grey version throws up a very rare variant by having black plastic wheels and this was again, presumed to be the wheel dies breaking down and models still to be finished.

The model was only ever issued in the A type box and early models were crimped and later versions rivetted
