Road Champs 1/43 Scale Diecast 1920 Ford Lionel Delivery Truck - Lionel 100th Anniversary

To celebrate their 100th anniversary in 2000, Lionel had a bunch of limited edition trains and toys produced under license. One of these, the 1920 Ford Delivery truck by Road Champs (Item No. 48200) was a nicely done rendition of an early Ford truck with operating back doors and a stack of 'boxes' lettered for Lionel.  Ya know, I see toys like this and sometimes I wonder if Lionel ever operated a fleet of these kind of trucks (obviously without the 100 year anniversary graphics) or did they simply rely on the various commercial delivery firms? Oh well, no biggie, I don't have time to research it anyway. The truck measures  3 1/4" (8.25cm) L x 1 1/2" (3.81cm) W x 2 1/16" (5.23cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

I have two of these trucks; one of them still mint in unopened box, and one loose.
