Great pics! On the 62B vans, is the GPW "Radio Rentals" an original? That is a VERY hard to find model and very seldom seen...............
Nice!

Dan, Would love to see a pic. I think the only "Radio Rentals" Van w/ GPW that I've ever seen was on a Vectis auction a while back.
Thanks!

Brad, No problem and thanks for the clarification as I was getting excited to see a real TV van w/ "Radio Rentals" decals and GPW! The quest continues to see one "in the flesh" or a pic from a reputable collector................................

im still looking for one too...how solid is the lore with this model...is it speculation or is it 100% legit?

Based on Nick's listing and Stannard's Guide, it does exist along with the VERY difficult also --- 38B Vauxhall Wagon with RED interior and GPW. I consider both of these models to be very hard to find relating to the later regular wheel models. In my opinion, another very difficult model to find with GPW is the GOLD #22B Vauxhall Cresta. I have been looking for all 3 models for several years and have NEVER seen one live, let alone seen pictures of them.........................
