Benbros "TV Series" and "Mighty Midgets" 17-20

Number 17 was the Crawler Tractor with Disc Harrow, This was a reissue of the previous crawler tractor with the addition of a tow along disc harrow, Unforunately my examples are both missing the dics harrows which often get lost due to their small size. The tractors were available in yellow or orange with silver trim to the grille, air filter and engine, The detachable disc harrow was painted red.

Value approximately 30-40

Number 18 was the American Hudson Tourer which was a one piece body casting with attached baseplate, The wheels were originally die cast and painted either blue or white, Later black plastic wheels were fitted, Silver trim was applied to the grille and sometimes to the rear fins, It has been seen in red, orange, metallic blue, pale blue and in a chromed finish with pale blue baseplate and wheels with a red painted roof.

Value approximately 25-35

Number 19 was the Crawler Tractor and Trailer which was again a reissue of the earlier crawler casting with the addition of a tow along trailer. The crawler can be found in yellow or orange. The two wheeled trailer is usually found in red, It had unpainted die cast metal wheels and like many in the range it bore no makers name so can be hard to identify unless it comes complete with the box

Value approximately 30-40

Number 20 was the Foden 8 wheeled flat lorry, This was cast in two halves which consist of the cab and chassis and a seperate load bed, It usually had silver trim to the grille, Early issues had metal wheels and later ones black plastic wheels. Known colours are metallic green, blue, metallic blue, red cab & chassis with yellow load bed and finally blue cab & chassis with red load bed. All of the 8 wheeled Fodens are highly sought after but are very hard to find.

Value approximately 40-60
