Eastwood Automobilia / Liberty Classics 1/43 Diecast Lionel Model A Delivery and Milk Trucks Set No. 311500 - Pt 1

I have managed to take a whole bunch of pictures this week, now all I need is some time to edit and post them. Next up in the Lionel City/Lionelville series of vehicles is another 2-pack set from Eastwood Automobilia. The vehicles themselves were made by Liberty Classics and include a Model A Delivery Truck and Milk Tanker Truck. We'll feature the delivery truck first. Lettered for Lionelville Hardware and Hobby it measures 3 1/2" (8.89cm) L x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) W x 1 3/4" (4.44cm) H. If I'm deciphering the date of manufacture embossed on the reverse side of the box correctly then this set was made in 2003 ( 5 2 3 3 which I take to mean May 23, 2003). I could be wrong so if anyone knows for sure Eastwood's system let me know. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
