Four Wheel Trailer

 

Designed to complement the Commer Dropside Lorry and later the ERF these smart trailers really added play value to your Corgi collection. Of course they went just as well behind your Dinkys too. It worked very well in combination with all the loads from the Corgi Cargoes range which came out a little later.

100 Dropside

Production for the dropside (100) ran from 1957 to 1965 and they were always cream with red mudguards. The early ones had a wire drawbar, the cast drawbar was added in 1962 (December), All versions seem to be of similar value.

101 Platform

The wire drawbar was on the original 1958 release, the cast drawbar came out at the end of 1962. Although the cast drawbar is more realistic the wire one works better because of its vertical articulation. They used the same back body as was used for the Commer & ERF Platform lorries and were therefore compatible with the Corgi Cargoes, the cement, bricks, planks and milk-churn loads you could put on the back.

The early release with the wire drawbar always had a silver deck, the chassis/mudguards could be pale yellow or metallic blue, both versions are valued the same. The versions below in other colours are from gift sets
