Great comparison pics:thumbsup:
Can you show the rear views of all 3 wagons lined up please?
I am sure its no coincidence that the Olds was first released in metallic green of the Mercury shade coming just after the Lotus Europa released in its first Lesney colour.And the classic Morris Mini in red with a black roof is actually the 1st run colour of the 1960s Dinky toy as shown on its box art for at least 6 years of the same model so there is great appeal to vintage collectors in the current range.
Well done Mattel - 10/10 for diecast heritage research
I have the older Merc wagon, but it's been painted, and in rough shape... got it years ago, bought a neighbour's collection back when I was knee high to a cricket....I'd like to fnd the Lincoln with superfast wheels
OK I will get the rear of the three wagons lined up!!! Mattel has a direct line with the MCCH site and use members for lots of old info. Matchbox has just built a huge display of all its models in the Mattel california offices to rival the HW display in house!!!
