OXFORD WALLS ICE CREAM SCANIA 110 40FT BOX TRAILER
Evoking pure nostalgia, Oxford’s 1:76 scale retro Scania 110 model is based on the Swedish manufactured vehicle which first appeared in Britain in 1968 when it was unveiled at the East of England Showground in Peterborough. At the time it was hailed as state of the art in trucking! The Scania featured a modified right hand drive for the UK truck market and innovative for the time, it boasted fully adjustable suspension type seats, a rev counter, high output heating system and a cigarette lighter! A two bunk sleeper facility was also an option. It had a simplified gear change over its predecessors and basic routine maintenance could be carried out by lifting the two piece hinged radiator grille rather than by tilting the cab.
You’ve seen our Oxford Scania 110 with several different types of trailer units previously and here it is pulling a Wall’s Ice Cream trailer of the period, registered OFH 916L from 1972/73. The tractor unit is painted in bright yellow, while the colourful trailer is decorated in white and yellow with a silver roof and black trim. The sides are printed with the signature blue Wall’s Ice Cream lettering. Those retro graphics certainly bring back memories form the 1970s
