Oxford Diecast :

“The Oxford series of Coca Cola models takes a new direction this time, in the shape of the BMC Mobile Unit. Registered 001 OLA, the 1:76 scale diecast model is brightly decorated in Coke’s signature red and white colour scheme with bright yellow wheels. The roof is masked white while the interior features red seating to the rear and black towards the front. Coca Cola graphics appear in red along the sides of the vehicle as well as an invitation to ‘Enjoy that Refreshing New Feeling’ along the skirt. Lots of chrome to window surrounds, radiator grille and windscreen wipers accentuate the bold livery.

In real life, BMC’s Mobile Unit was a transporter commissioned by Nuffield Exports in 1958 when Marshall Motor Bodies in Cambridge built six of them, all built on Nuffield 5-ton FFK 140 coach chassis.  The vehicles were constructed essentially for internal use - from mobile classrooms for training purposes to a support vehicle for their racing/rallying stable. The interior could be fitted out according to the role.  Collectors have been treated to a number of these already in this series.”
