This Ford Cargo Box Van is a replica of the forward control (cab-over-engine), which Ford launched in 1981 in the UK and the registration plate on our model RVT 18W dates it as being produced in that very first launch year. The Ford Cargo is still in production and has been very successful, particularly with freight companies. The clever design saw the windows in the doors extended down to floor level to enable drivers to see the curb more easily when parking, a feature replicated on this 1:76 scale vehicle. BRS – formerly British Road Services – has been one of the key users of the Ford Cargo and this model bears their familiar white colour scheme with red and blue graphics, performing a truck rental role. The graphics extend across the front and rear of the truck, with additional detail comprising red wheels and a black interior.
