Mid 60's display

I just discovered this part of the forum. I'm a long time 1/43rd collector and Ford fan. My project is a display of Fords competing at LeMans, the Monte Carlo rally, etc. Support vehicles and mechanics, prototype billboards and to it. One thing that I would like to find are a preferably French Shell tanker and a British Goodyear van

My toy in the mid 60s. Every guy's friend, sitting on my boat, a home made 3 point hydro I built when I was 14. This was at a show ( 1965 ) at the PNE in Vancouver BC
Her name is Linda Vaughn, she shifted my gears.
Other stuff collected



Here's my chance to ask a question I've always wondered about_ why the odd numbered scale "1/43"?
