Re: New Eida Grip 1:32 Tyrell Transporter

This is a very old kit from the late seventies or early eighties. I am not entirely sure it is accurate as the type of vehicle is not how I remember the Tyrrell Team transporter, although the livery might be ok for 1977. I suppose it could be a transporter hired in for some races (US perhaps)? Exoto diecast models also made this as a 1/43 model.
If I remember correctly there was also a Ferrari tractor and trailer unit (again with an unusual Ford tractor unit, although Ferrari would probably used FIAT tractors) and possibly a Porsche one. Possibly Airfix or MPC released the Ferrari transporter a while later?

I think that it is an American Ford truck so it might be a "fake" livery.

Found an google image that shows the correct livery from Monaco 1977, but there are a few differences in the truck cab

Yes. That is an European truck. The cab is totally different and it has a longer wheel base than the kit.

If you do a google search for "Entex 1/32" you will find this kit and also the Ferrari and Porsche transporters.
