-823 GMC citerne militaire (1969-70)

This is a very rare item... It was produced for only six months and was relatively expensive. 

The tank, pipes and caps are all plastic, now 60 year old plastic. If you ever see one of these DO NOT flex the pipes to open the caps... they WILL break. 

I bought lots of French military Dinkys on a camping tour of France in 1965 (in a Hillman Imp). I didn't buy one of these as I couldn't afford it even then. 

It took me many years to find a really good example, this came from a dealer in the Channel Islands and was old shop stock. It has been safely behind glass ever since

These are quite often faked up to look good but are almost always 'wrong 'uns'. Currently fetching over £400

Wonderful item Chris. Have you the road sign ?

I have this model but without the box and the road sign !crying A little part of the sticker is missing.

Those stickers are a pain... impossible to reproduce and not available anywhere

Yes - I have the road sign, it's in the box in a dark corner of my shed in a big carton with all the other boxes..

Hi Chris,

 

Here is the official badge of the French army petrol dept. (Service des Essences aux Armées).

You may be able to use the picture to make replacement transfers.

Oh!  That is excellent.... I've never been able to find that. I do have some 823 examples in less than perfect condition. I shall investigate making transfers - THANK YOU !!
