Berliet T100 n°4 1959 on the way to Tulsa 1:43

€141.58

This truck is the fourth and last of the T100 trucks produced by Berliet.

The French brand wished to conquer the USA, and the project was to present a T100 model at the May 1959 World Fair in Tulsa. For this, Paul Berliet wanted a truck with a strong and futuristic design.

The design of the T100 No. 4 differs from the previous T100s in that it has a forward-facing, nose-less cab. Its habitability and comfort are also a novelty on the T100.

 Our miniature reproduces this truck which left Lyon for a shipment to the USA in its winch-equipped platform configuration.

At more than 29cm long in 1/43 scale, the gigantic dimensions of the real model are felt.
