Dark blue loud speaker van with a two-way loudspeaker mounted on the roof, and a silver grille and black semi-circular wheelguards over the rear wheels. These were adapted castings of the Mini Van with a loudspeaker attached to the roof.
These vehicles were used for electioneering, public announcements, and possibly annoying unfriendly neighbours.
Made from 1948-1957, the toy was previously numbered 34c, and was renumbered to 492 from 1954.
