Oil Doesn't Find Its Self
Between the Wars the need for more and more oil to fuel the industrial growth of the World was of paramount importance to the leaders of Standard Oil. To search for oil in ever more distant lands a series of all wheel drive exploration trucks were developed.
Here one of their number has seen yeoman work in the never ending search for the elusive black gold.
This truck is a die cast metal piece from Lledo. I painted on details, added the pipes and railing on the roof and painted her to look as if she has been to the far corners of the Earth on her never ending search for oil.
