MATCHBOX Y5 - 1972 TALBOT VAN "DUNLOP TYRES"

The year 1978 was to prove significant in a number of ways. Matchbox Models of Yesteryear were still the prime interesting among many collectors. What made 1978 special was the new casting to fill the Y5 slot: announced as a 1927 Talbot van. When the Talbot van did arrive, it certainly as it included a fairly unusual feature for Yesteryears, namely opening rear doors.



For 1984 there was another so called limited edition, in Dunlop livery. Dunlop vans change little. Look out for the seats, which could be tan or black, and the wheels – either a bright yellow or a paler yellow. Buy it now.
