Now, gentlemen, what would you like to have from the traveling grocer? Looks like he has lots of French wine.

Door and hatch open and close. Eligor/Hachette.

Hmmm, bottles on shelves. Guess there weren't any potholes in 1949.

This has got to be added to my Hs mini collection.
I can see Jamie will also be scrambling for this one !

And Tom and Jeff, yep, I love it.

Even though it says "epiciere" which is a grocery shop, it looks more like what we Australians refer to as a "Grogatorium".

Nevertheless, as predicted, I am on the trail of one!

Ah, but not much money. :)

Another one for your consideration, gents. Apparently, this van is hauling items for "recycling." Note the bent fender and bumpers. A few dents in the roof and elsewhere. Plenty of dirt, too. Fun stuff. :)

We must start an 'H' thread. They seem to be popular on the forum.

As a kid I enjoyed collecting Dinky and Corgi delivery vans with their familiar British consumer company liveries. I'm trying very hard to resist starting off a whole new theme with these quaint colourful and mostly cheap Altayas. H5 junk hauler and grogmobile are both v.cute. Let me complete my Lambo collection first then I may just turn my attention to a set of French vans....

Its a winner RT, it has a lot going for it.

Ian, I would probably go for these before I would buy more Lambos :D

Not a one I wouldn't want Steve but that Ransomes Austin is especially interesting as I like the colors and used to own a Ransomes mower.

Cheers Jeff - that's a very early Vanguards release & one of the first models I bought when I started collecting

This has turned into a lovely 'Commercials" thread, RT, so here's two cuties from me

Image
First, Germans who can't spell Gasoline, but it's still a nice Opel Rekord

Image
And Frenchmen who can't spell Fruit, in this quite lovely, cheap Simca Aronde van
