I picked this Hong Kong made set some months ago on eBay from a kind seller up north in Queensland for 22.60.












Has copyright by Gordy International Yorkers NY 10701 made in Honk Kong with No 566 on the card. I bring to notice the sign board and petrol bowser alongside the packet having strong similarities to the ones in the blister card. I have already posted the loose ones before on this thread with the shell tanker and trailer and figures.


Cheers.

That is a very nice collection of Matchbox items there Gunnerjim, a great gift from the lady, very nice to see especially with their boxes.


Nice sets from Hong Kong too.

Hi Andy you got my brain thinking about something I have had for awhile and forgot about them. Anyway better to be late than never I suppose and as the sun was shining brightly this autumn day I searched some of the storage boxes in the garage and found these. The collection was given to me by elderly lady that I did some gardening and some household repairs for.
















Cheers.

Excellent. I spied a couple of Corgi toy vehicles among the collection of garages and other related buildings.

I could not resist buying this one, it is a lovely toy tinplate garage with wind up cars made by Technofix of West Germany late 50's early 60's & it is complete & working with both cars & keys, sadly there is a sop sign missing which I hopefully will find a replacement. I hope the video of this working comes out on here ok , as I only ever post pictures.


The garage attendant gets a little temperamental at times but he does come out most times , Enjoy.
I can not add the video but I will do later as I will get my daughter to help.

Very nice set. I had something similar as a kid but can't remember who made it. Had a couple American cars and was also wind up.
These were great in the day and had loads of play value. Nice score and thanks for showing. Brings back memories.

Excellent find and enjoyed the video link. To find one of these wind up spring vehicles with keys included and the motorway and garage system is absolutely fabulous.
