Nice silver ‘Berliet’ detail head-on as well as headlights (all original).
Close scrutiny reveals a few minor marks. Number plates front and rear.
No road sign with this example.
The illustrated card box is bright and complete. Crisp feel. So often found in very poor condition due to the flimsy nature of the card in comparison to the weight of the truck. This example has fared better than most! Minor age/handling wear only.
