Vintage Lancia 3RO Mobile Workshop Truck - By Andrey Rupor

As originally posted, we had no information on this neat little vintage truck from Andrey Rupor. Rick Hoskinson contacted us to let us know this is a model of an Italian Lancia 3RO vintage circa 1939. These were used by the Italian Army and later on by the German Wehrmacht, hence the Panzer gray paint scheme. The truck was built as a mobile workshop. As you can see from the photo, the side sections with the windows are hinged at the top. This allowed that portion of the side wall to be raised. The lower side segment is hinged at the bottom and allowed the bed sides to be lowered into a full length work bench. Special thanks to Rick for the update (updated May 7, 2017).
