Lesney-Matchbox made a few 1:43 cars in the late 60s for their King Size range. Sadly that they never came with more as these cars could give Corgi and Dinky a run for the money when it comes to the quality :cool:












Enjoy!

Great shots of great model!
I still need the Muira and the Mercury.
Looks like those wheels might be Muira only(???).

Yes the special wheels were for the Miura only.
However, it would not surprice me if some of the others were found with these wheels (and "ordinary wheels" on the Miura for that matter)

Fine pictures, wonderful box art, excellent choice of colors by Lesney, with steering and all for less than a Corgi or Dinky - they didnt steal the market but sure did grab a chunk of it! I still need to find a Dodge for my collection..........

Those are great, Karl-E! I also love the box art. Do you think they are 1:43, or just close? I always though they were smaller than the other late-60's brands - Dinky Corgi Tekno Politoys etc. :confused:

The 1:1 scale Miura is 4,260 mm (167.7 in) long. What about yours? Just curious. :eek:

Karl - They are very close to 1:43, I'm a little surpriced that you don't have them in your collection, they'll fit right in with your other stuff :wave:
