BEDFORD OB

The following are extracts from the Oxford Diecast website:

"Many of our collectors are unaware of our presence in Malta which has been increasing in recent years particularly in the Tourist markets. Our Bedford Coach was first introduced there in 1998 and each year we have added new variants. All these products are un-certificated... "

"Although the Oxford products were sold to our distributor in Malta in our normal window boxes very often we have had reports that the models have been changed in some way. Some being stripped of their packaging whilst at other times insert cards have been inserted".

All models up to and including MALTA7 were produced in the UK.
