I found a few Matchbox in a rubbermaid container, sitting by themselves on a shelf near the pegs. After sifting thru it, I found several blisterpack errors....Ford GT in silver, some were labelled "Lincoln Naviator", Crown Vic Taxi, and City Bus.....then spotted a few of these, so I picked up four of them, and opened one so far

Great eye.....

Mattel is known for this in offloading the Cards that they made too
many of, so they will use them for other Cars as they know all Diecast
will sell....

there was a whole gaggle of silver Ford GT's that were on cards marked for all kinds of other models, but I left them....the plastic bin they were all in must be the misfit Matchbox.

It's a wonder people still collect these even knowing that Mattel does this on purpose. I'm not judging others who collect these, but it's one of the reasons I don't do card errors.
