LEGO Denmark Vintage 1956/1957 Bedford ESSO Fuel Tank Truck, Gas Pumps and Sign From Esso Filling Station, LEGO Set Nos. 1310/310-5. Rare, early combination of LEGOs old and new. Before LEGO did what it's widely known for, namely building sets and the block system, they made various other wood, plastic and die-cast toys and vehicles. We have two of the pre-block-system die-cast vehicles (a 1950s Mercedes convertible and a fire truck) up in the shop under separate listings.

This listing features a rare ESSO Oil fuel truck with die-cast wheels, along with the rare ESSO fuel pumps and ESSO sign from the 1956 LEGO Set No. 1310, ESSO Filling Station, and the 1957 LEGO Set No. 310-5, ESSO Filling Station.

For historical perspective, LEGO first introduced building blocks in "gift sets" in 1954. These were the first style blocks that had the little slots on the side of them. In 1955 LEGO released their very first actual sets with the Town Plan series, which featured very small, basic things you could build on a Town Plan plate, Set/Piece No. 1200-1. On the Town Plan plate, you could build the 1955 Small House Set Nos. 1211-2, 1212-2, and 1213-2, the Small Store Set No. 1210-2, the Garage/Garage With Automatic Door, Sets No. 1236-2/236-1, the Traffic Police Sets No. 1271-2/271-2, and then in 1956, the set from which this listing comes, the ESSO Filling Station Set No. 1310. So the ESSO Filling Station Set No. 1310 was the FIFTH LEGO set ever released (setting aside the Gift Packages from 1954). Talk about a Promethean set. Highly collectible.
