Bedford OYD Coal Merchant Truck

Unpainted resin cast British Bedford OYD Truck. The Bedford OYD was a 6x2 General Service Truck produced by the British during WWII. Based on the design of the US GMC 2.5ton, the British used the design to speed up production. The OY design was used for a number of variants including mobile canteens, fuel tankers, as well as a range of more general service duties. During and following WWII many OYD were also used in civilian roles such as this flat bed coal merchant truck with a small load.
