Eastwood Automobilia / Road Champs 1/43 Diecast 1956 Ford Pick-Up Truck & Horse Trailer Set

It's pretty obvious I've been pulling out the old Lionel diecast stuff. This is a nice set made by Road Champs for Eastwood  Automobilia nd includes a 1956 Ford F100 pick-up truck hauling a Featherlite horse trailer. The truck has operating doors and tailgate and the trailer has opening ports and rear doors. Both the truck and trailer are lettered for "Iron Horse Ranch" while the trailer proudly proclaims "Breeding Champions Since 1900" in reference to Lionel's nearly 100 years in business. This set came out in 1995 so it was part of the ramp-up celebrations to the Lionel centennial in 2000. The truck measures 4 7/8" (12.38cm) L x 1 7/8" (4.46cm) W x 1 3/4" (4.44cm) H and the trailer measures 4 1/2" (11.43cm) L x 2 1/8" (5.39cm) W x 2 5/8" (6.66cm).H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
