Many readers may know Pegaso from the trucks that were mainly produced for the Spanish home market for many years. But shortly after the Second World War, the brand also built prestigious sports cars. Which was also used to race.
When a transporter had to come for those cars, such a truck was built in-house. It was named Bacalao, which means cod. That will all have to do with the form, I assume. At least one is still in good condition in Spain. Probably a rebuilding or an intensive restoration. Transmodels and Hispania Miniatures once made it into a resin model.
