Foden Hoveringham Tipper - Model of the Day

Lesney #17d - Foden Hoveringham Tipper

This Lesney model was added to the 1-75 range in 1963. The livery was modeled after the Hoveringham Gravel Company from Northamptonshire. There was only this one main variation done, with the red body, orange tipper, and black plastic wheels. As with most all Lesneys of this era, there were quite a few small variations found, including a couple of different types of suspension, and various small changes in the casting itself. 

It's not an overly valuable model, but a nice one regardless!
