Name:Bradford Roadside Diner
Model Introduced:1950
Finishpainted & lettered
The #767 Bradford Roadside Diner was produced from 1950 through 1954, in two variations. The first, as shown in the photo, is made of yellow plastic. The second was made of black Bakelite that was painted yellow. The painted variation is very often missing paint as the paint did not bond to the Bakelite very well.
