Guy I’m guessing that the asphalt truck is custom, if not who makes it. As Q said great model.

Steve and Craig,

The asphalt truck was bought as is and kept unchanged: I suppose that it was produced by Ixo, as most models made for the press in that scale and displayed in this topic.

Regards.

Guy thanks for the information, do you have any pavers or rollers that would accompany that truck in a diorama.

Steve,

That kind of truck was mainly used to deliver hot asphalt for buildings flat roofs covering: the hot "liquid" was loaded in buckets at the back and hand-carried to roof tops where it was laid over tar rolls to make these water-tight.

I hope this helps.

Guy thanks for the information, around here the roofing companies have stake body trucks with burner trailers. They carry hard asphalt like cylinders on the stake body and they throw those into the burner trailer and melt it down right on the site. They put it to the roof the same way, pulley system and buckets. They also throw stone across the hot asphalt. All flat roof systems use this method, they also do a lot of roof repairs with this method.
Steve.
That Ford 9000 looks like a nice model.

Steve,

The car is a Peugeot 4x2 pick-up turned into a 4x4 unit by Dangel. There are a few down here in South-East of France within civilian forest fire brigades (hence their yellow color different from the normal fire brigade red).
Peugeot didn't believe in the seventies that AWD cars had any future: although their 4x2 vehicles had a very good reputation in Africa and were selling very well down there, they selected to have Dangel (a small volume car transformation company) modify one of their models in response to a French Army call for tender, instead of producing a 4x4 vehicle themselves.
Future proved that their strategy was heavily wrong: Africa is today full of Japanese AWDs cars (Toyota and others) with Peugeot having lost their supremacy down there. Funnily enough, Peugeot is now producing a 4x4 SUV, but far too late to impact the African market.

Regards.

Guy thanks for that information, I thought Peugeot only built cars I would have never guessed they built pick ups.

Steve,

The yellow van is a Peugeot J7, which was produced during 15 years in various versions to approx. 240 000 units. It had - like numerous vans at that time - a design similar to the Ford Econoline of 1st generation (forward driving place with engine inside the cab between front seats, etc).

Link to the Wikipedia article about the Peugeot J7: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peugeot_J7 and about the Ford Econoline: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_E-Series

I hope this helps.
Guy
