Matchbox Superfast Series No.42-c Mercedes Cont. Truck
|| for item C1089
This vehicle is from the Matchbox Superfast Series. Due to the advent of the Mattel Hot Wheels with their frictionless wheels, Matchbox introduced this series in 1969 and the Superfast name was used until 1980. This one is number MB42-C Mercedes Container Truck and was issued in 1977. It has a red body, beige container with red roof and doors, black base and blue windows. It is in mint condition as it has never been played with. Bottom is marked "Matchbox Superfast Mercedes Container Truck No.42 Made in England 1976 Lesney Prod. & Co.". Sorry no box.
