Just sharing what I managed to grab locally. Very happy to get the Classic Seagrave Fire engine which is imho, one of the best ever from Matchbox. Hope we will see more of this sort in 2013.
On to the pics...
Is the Seagrave in the standard issue? I'll have to keep an eye out for it. I came very close to picking up that Holden Ute the other day, but I think I'd want to do something about refinishing it, or at least losing the tampos. Holden had a very nice metallic green a few years ago - A friend of mine on another website has one in that color.
Yes the Seagrave is the basic range version of it. It has also been the subject of 2 promotional models so far (one for the Matchbox Gathering in burgundy and one for Everett Marshall's Charity Golf Tournament in white).
