Oxford Diecast Bedford OX Booking Office Billy Smarts 76BD013
In real life, the Bedford OX was a short-wheelbase version of the Bedford OY, designed for a 30 cwt payload and often linked to a semi-trailer, as this model shows, comprising a trailer back without a front axle but supported by the tractor unit axle. The Bedford OX is used to its full potential on this model of an advanced booking office which was specific to Billy Smarts Circus. The bodywork is decorated in two tone pale and darker green with the whole of the trailer cleverly masked and printed to make it look as if it has windows, a door and a kiosk towards the rear section with a finely printed and colourful poster. The roofboard is advertising the vehicle as an advanced booking office for the circus. Registered GLL 275, the cab reflects the colour of the trailer and has dark green mudguards and wheel inserts, a brown interior and black steering wheel.
