Description

Collectable scale model;  precise, highly detailed, accurate, assembled diecast model, scale 1/24

Superb scale model of a highway legend from the '50 / '60, the 1960 UNIC ZU 122 Izoard, 6 cylinders, 160 HP truck with sleeper and a high rack stake body.

During the '50s and '60s, the term 'primeurs' described merchandise/goods carriers and, by extension, the transporters/truckers who expedited fruits and vegetables from the growing regions, mainly of Provence  - to the consumers - typically Paris and other large cities (*). Like the UNIC ZU 122 Izoard, the fastest, most powerful, and reliable trucks were favoured by the 'primeurs'. The trucks were fitted with produce bodies offering space over the cab, a dropping rear tailgate (for loading additional crates), and side doors to facilitate loading and unloading which was still done by hand. This 'produce body', often of wood construction over a metal frame, was ventilated in the upper area by open spaces and, in good weather, the tarpaulin could be pulled back.

The scale model offered by MAQMADON very effectively incorporates all these characteristics of the 'produce body': upper ventilation, opening side doors, dropping tailgate, and real wood trim. These model does not have applied graphics but are supplied with a water decal transfer sheet allowing the collector, if desired, to personalize their own example. The water decal transfer sheet contains graphics for 4 produce transport companies with appropriate images for doors, frontal body surface, front and rear license plates, and department ID plates.

(*) This legend was popularized by the television program series 'La Route', aired in 1964.
