This is the Unknown GMC Delivery Van in the yellow livery of Coca Cola.

It is a one piece, somewhat crude, casting with all detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, doors, etc. cast into the metal.

There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries no manufacturer's mark or country of origin details.

All wheels are of a solid black rubber hub and tyre type. The front axle passes through cast pillars on the underside of the body and the wheels appear to be pressure fitted to the ends of the axle. The rear axle passes through the wheels and body and the wheels are held in place by a separate tube holding them apart. The ends of the axles appear to have been lightly peened.

I don't know when this casting was issued. It has an approximate scale of 1:48 if compared to a 1947-50 Chevrolet Panel Van.
