The L 1000 Express delivery vehicle was introduced to the public in 1929 on the basis of the chassis of the Mercedes-Benz „Stuttgart Type“ passenger vehicle. A 50 BHP six-cylinder engine gave the L 1000 a top speed of 65 km/h. Because of its extraordinary reliability and its robustness, large quantities of the vehicle were also purchased by the German Reichspost. With a payload of 1000 kilograms and the advertising area associated with the large-area box-type superstructure, the Mercedes-Benz L 1000 was used by many companies as a transport vehicle and advertisement on wheels in the 1930s and 1940s.Schuco presents the die-cast Mercedes-Benz L1000 Expressin 1:43 scale. As is expected of Schuco models, a number of key features have been reproduced exactly with the greatest attention to detail.
