# 55 FORD CORTINA ! 1979 !! Excellent Condition with Original Box !! Matchbox Lesney !! EXCELLENT !




The vehicle is in fantastic condition...  !! 33+ YEARS OLD AND LOOKS GREAT !!.. Doors open and close !! Tow bar present too. There are tiny areas of colour rubbing (very slight and still looks lovely!!) Metal base with Lesney 1979  markings. Very hard to find a collector's piece this old in such great condition!!!

The box has small areas of colour rubbing and edge wear, but Box has a good shape and all flaps are present !! There is a tiny half a cm tear on 1 side flap from the tow bar ( this is quite common with these boxes when the model inside has a tow bar) Name of this vehicle and number code of vehicle on side of box.  Box Dated 1982 !! Very Rare to find these 30+ year old boxes !!

Made in England 1979

Hi Mark, Would you accept my offer of R3,000.00 for 14 Matchbox models 37, 2, 32, 26, 72, 55, 75, 36, 30, 65, 54, 23, 72, and 12? Kind regards, Anton - Asked by The Bush Man (1206 Rating score between 1000 and 4999Verified User

Hi there. I hope all is well. Yes, this is the correct box. The Matchbox company released this entire series in the same style boxes (with a picture of a truck and a Corvette), but they printed the number and name of the vehicle on the side flaps. This box has 55 Ford Cortina printed on the side flaps.
Thanks very much for your interest.

Hi thee Anton. My apologies. I only saw your updated question now. Bid or Buy did not inform me that there was a new question. Regarding your query, I have in most cases 3 to 4 vehicles with the same numbers, from different Matchbox ranges, so I am not quite sure which ones you are referring to. What I can say is that for an amount like that I can do an 8% discount, so feel free to bid on whatever you like if you are happy with those terms.
Thanks very much and have a great day. -- Mark
