Matchbox Pickups

Post by jinx »

About 10 years ago, I was buying several Matchbox series via mail order. One was a set of six pickups. All came with coldcast loads in the bed relating to owner's trade. Here are three of the six :

1934 International - Wilson Grain & Feed

1939 REO - Forgione Stone & Brick Mason

1940 Ford - Murdock Lumber

The others were a Chevy, a second Ford and, strangely, an Aussie Holden - probably because the casting already existed.

I'll post some pictures later in my own thread (don't want to highjack yours).

Look forward to seeing your photos Frank - I never got around to getting anything from those two sets, although I have been tempted. I should at least have bought one examle of each of the Chevys & Fords.
