MATCHBOX YESTERYEAR No.YRS-01-1955 CHEVY 3100, “AAA” TOWING & SERVICE




The American Automobile Association (AAA) was founded in 1902 to serve the nation’s travelers. In the nearly 95 years since its inception, the number of vehicles on American highways has grown dramatically, and AAA has always responded to the challenge. One thing every driver needs is reliable road service when a vehicle breaks down. Sometimes AAA can service a car right at the sight by changing a tire, filling the gas tank, or charging a battery. But there are times when the automobile must be taken into the shop. That’s when the AAA Towing and Service vehicle has always been essential. In the ‘50s, the Sunset Gasoline service station’s Towing and Service truck was just such a vehicle. The station was part of the wide AAA network, and its truck came to the relief of motorrists with in its jurisdiction. After inspecting the problem and determining that the car must be towed, the mechanic used the powerful towing winch to bring the car back to the station where it was given the quality repair service that has always been a trademark of AAA. And now, the AAA Towing and Service vehicle 1955 Chevy 3100 is part of The Fabulous Fifties Road Service Collection. It has been crafted in die-cast metal by Matchbox Collectibles—“the Greatest Name in Die-Cast”
