MATCHBOX MOY Y5 - 1927 TALBOT VAN "ROSE'S LIME JUICE CORDIAL"


Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial was the livery for 1985, and indeed carried through to 1988. The initial releases had a cream body with mid green chassis (and black or tan seats). The following year the body colour had become off white and the chassis dark green (again with black or tan seats). While the wheels were generally green, examples of the pale cream body version are known with red wheels.

Although the majority of these models were made by Lesney in England, a final production run of the Rose’s version was undertaken in 1988 in Macau (inscribed as such on the baseplate) Buy it now.
