Details
The first Foden was released in 1984 in the blue & red Pickfords livery. Very quickly the dies were modified in the area to the front of the load bed and the sides of the cab, This modification was not successful so it was altered again. Then the framing around the planking on the side of the bed was reduced in depth to allow the tampo decoration to be applied correctly. On a later run some chassis fitted with a hook were used which were really intended for the Frasers' issue as well as some which did not have the hook but did have a hook securing rivet. The second version of the body is rare and so is the one with just a hook rivet,
