After dutifully providing 16,000 trucks and 2000 light ambulances for American military use in World War l, GMC unveiled its new post-war truck line in 1919. It centered on the "K" range, which included the one-ton K-16. The K-16 was powered by a 3.6-liter engine, and utilized a three-speed unit gearbox, bevel drive and pneumatic tires. Considered a light truck by GMC, the K-16 proved to be an ideal delivery vehicle for Texaco, who used it to deliver the company's high-quality petroleum products during the late teens and 1920s.
This 1/28th scale die cast metal 1919 Texaco GMC Tanker Truck is modeled after an actual vehicle that was part of Texaco's expansive fleet. The body wears authentic period black-and-red paint with white pinstriping, and displays vintage logos. Additional highlights include red spoke-wheels, a chrome-tone plated grille, and chains connecting the load to the cab.
