Articulated Truck
Debut Series 1-75 Superfast
Produced 1973 - 1978
Number 50
7350 Articulated Truck

The Articulated Truck is a three-axle tractor-trailer combination, offered in the 1-75 range and later included in the Twin Packs range with a second trailer. The tractor features a ball and post which fits a socket in the trailer. Though the tractor unit is shared with the Freeway Gas Tanker, and is therefore interchangeable with that model, this seems to be for manufacturing reasons, rather than for play value. Wheel type sometimes varied between the tractor and trailer, even on models packaged together. Colored glazing, a small cab, and no rear window space hide the lack of an interior. The Twin Packs version was introduced in 1978.
