The Broguiere's Farm Fresh Dairy story is a well known one amongst residents all over the state of
California. Broguiere's has been a pivotal fixture of the community, popularly known for its old-timey glass bottles filled
with creamy milk, hand-mixed chocolate milk and seasonal eggnog. The family-run business has been in existence for over 100
years. Its containers are adorned with the drawing of a horned cow and the playful words, "Milk So Fresh... The Cow Doesn't
Know It's Missing" on the front, with images on the back that periodically change. They've become so popular over the years
that fans collect the bottles and the bottle caps. eBay has a collection of special-edition vintage Broguiere's bottles that
pay tribute to things like the Los Angeles Kings, space shuttle launches and even Halloween. Broguiere's is one of the last
existing dairies that still uses glass bottles! These 1950's DIVCO milk vans are accurate 1:43 scale models of the exact vans
that were utilized by Broguiere's Dairy to deliver their fresh milk and dairy products.
One of the actual Broguiere's Farm Fresh Dairy DIVCO milk vans, still sitting at the dairy in Montebello, Ca
DIVCO was the brand name for a type of delivery truck built and marketed in the United States from 1926 until 1986.
The name is an acronym that stands for Detroit Industrial Vehicles
COmpany. These vehicles became known for their multi-stop delivery function, particularly in use as home
delivery vehicles by dairy producers. A unique feature of the DIVCO trucks was that hand controls were configured to
facilitate driving while standing, as the throttle and brake were mounted right on the steering column. The DIVCO
milk van was once part of America's daily morning landscape when locally owned dairies delivered a wide variety of
fresh dairy products door to door by the friendly milkman driving a DIVCO.
Western Division started developing this project in early 2018 and has worked hard to create an interesting car that
will appeal to model train enthusiasts, die-cast vehicle collectors and the loyal customers and fans of the Broguiere's
Farm Fresh Dairy itself. Diecast Direct, of Frankfort, KY worked with us on the design and manufacture of the custom
decorated 1:43 scale DIVCO milk vans. This milk van is of the DIVCO-Twin Model U, first produced in 1948. These vans are
manufactured utilizing the same tooling that was used in the production of the American Heritage Models series of
