"Complete with machine gun and spare wheel".
The blow-molded Armoured Car first appears in the 1969 Equipment Manual. It was a very popular vehicle and very rugged. It looks as if it is based on the British Army's "Ferret' Armoured vehicle. The first wheels had no backs - they were shaped like a tray. Later wheels were hollow but complete. The machine gun was also blow-molded originally (later vehicles of the 1970s progressed to hard plastic with silver tip type). The Armoured Car was blow-molded in the Coalville Pailtoy Factory. The vehicle was ideally suited to the Armoured Car Commander of 1968. After production ended, a similar looking Scout Car was launched to replace it.
