CMC M-170 Mercedes-Benz LO 2750, 1934-38 Truck with tarpaulin Scale 1:18
After the global economic crisis of the late 1920s was over, an industrial resurgence was looming large everywhere. The Daimler-Benz AG lost no time in developing new, innovative commercial vehicles at its factory in Gaggenau, which made a name for efficiency and technical reliability. The offer of diesel-powered trucks back then was nothing short of being revolutionary.
Based on our replica of the platform truck, we are also offering a version of the LO 2750 with a tarpaulin-covered platform frame. The tarpaulin cover of the model is tied down with a piece of cord, which goes through the U-shaped brass hooks that pop out of the tarpaulin eyelets and is tied up along the mid-line of the tailgate. The tarpaulin cover is detachable, and the possibilities of the cargo are virtually endless. A masterly-done three-tone finish of green, red, and black provides a harmoniously-blended appearance to this impressive truck-replica.
In commemoration of the CMC co-founder Mr. Herbert Nickerl, the tarpaulin is printed with his name, as if the man were moving to be ahead of time, which we think he was.
