Oxford Diecast National Fire Service Austin ATV.
1:76 Scale Diecast Model with clear presentation box and removable plastic plinth. Part of the Oxford Diecast Railway Scale range.
The development of the ATV started in 1941 when the government ordered 2000 two-ton vans. Also in 1941, the Auxilliary Fire Service was nationalised to become the National Fire Service with the ATV’s being absorbed into the new body. After the War, many of the ATV’s were transferred to local authority fire brigades. Its amazing to note that some of the Austin K2 ATVs were still being used with some fire brigades as late as the 1970s.
