Specific Item Information: This is a great little truck for collectors of brewery vehicles. Our very detailed Foden FG Dray is decorated in the black and red livery of Fremlins Traditional Beers and Ales, complete with their elephant logo which is printed on both sides of the distinctive Foden radiator grille. Registered VYL 650, the Maidstone, Kent brewery address is finely printed on both sides of the cab and the trailer is stacked full with barrels and crates of their popular tipple!
Prototype History:
The completely new FE and FG lorry ranges were introduced in 1948, along with the new Foden FD6 two-stroke diesel engine, which became the standard engine for certain Foden heavy lorry models, such as the S18 FE6/15 Rigid Eight-Wheeler – the optional Gardner 6LW-engined version was the S18 FG6/15. (The S18 designation refers to the new cab that was produced for the new range.) The FD6 two-stroke engine, along with Gardner engines, was also fitted in Foden motorcoaches and buses. Only one Foden PVD double decker had the Foden Engine but it was popular in the PVS and PVR single-deckers, especially in coaching applications because it was much higher revving than the Gardner 5LW or 6LW. Bus and coach production ceased in 1956, but the last chassis only left the works in 1959, when it was registered 367CKA and received an early Plaxton Panorama body.From Wikipedia
