Long Vehicles by Crescent made in GT Britain an probably inspired by Matchbox Convoy series. Anyway it was a gift from my Son Darren. Many thanks. I found one nearly the same on eBay and it sold for 25 pound GBP.

I don't know if this toy has ever been out of its box but lets go for it and have a bit of a walk around and snap some images for the world to see.








Comes with its own stick on decals.

Strange design Cab and reminds me of a couple of others I have in my collection.








Like pretty basic underneath the (tractor) prime mover.

Has the name under the trail while the Crescent is above the radiator grill.

See what I mean about the similarity of the cab design above the waistline.








Cheers.

These truck and trailer toys are unusual because it was 'Lone Star' that made this sort of toy in 1976, till about 1979 as part of their 'IMPY' range, so they were around the 1/60th scale. The 'CRESCENT' versions are larger and there were not so many models in the range and it's interesting to note the registration sticker dated for 1975-76 ("CTC 35N"), and the method of construction follows the 'LONE STAR' method so closely, they could have come from the same factory!


'LONE STAR' of course was a brand name developed in the early 1950's to market the toys produced by DCMT (who earlier had made toys for 'CRESCENT'), so it's very conceivable that 'LONE STAR' were now making toys for 'CRESCENT'...

I recently sold this cab with a Husky Car Carrier trailer.



Re: Crescent Transport. 6 years, 4 months ago #11

Thanks Jim. Looks good anyway.

Re: Crescent Transport. 6 years, 4 months ago #12

And just sold it on like that with a profit.
Kept the proper Husky though.

Thanks Jim (sent you an email).

In the description said it was called a Crescent Truck, but there was one fella who kept asking the same question twice despite the description.

Re: Crescent Transport. 6 years, 4 months ago #13

I don't think that the truck was of any specific make. It was just a box on wheels that resembled a truck. I agree with Richard, Cresent Truck. That is what I called it.

changed this photo on my lot



to this photo to show the fella asking I wasn't kidding.
Someone else bought it though. As informed as we all are, there are still many collectors out there who are clueless and that there actually kids out there that play with toy trucks is unimaginable. LOL

It is a strange looking cab, for sure. Almost like a Mecanical Horse of types.
