The idea was revolutionary.
Renault the French truck maker using the chassis of its German competitor Bussing created this 7 ton truck model R4140. The engine was pushed to the back so that the driver’s cabin could offer a large space to comfortably sit 3 adults (it was a novel idea, then). Since the engine was moved out of the cabin meant lesser heat and practically no smell of fuel or oil inside for the occupant.
Drivers nicknamed this model as Faineant (it meant Lazy, in French) since the engine lacked power and one had to literally drag this small truck.
This scale model in metal will take you back to yesteryear's when diecast models were made. It has been recreated by NOREV, France and is a replica of the SHELL tanker.
