This has already been shown early in this forum on my collection of big time Matchbox KS & SK's.  Has the emergency number system on the box. EM-1 Plymouth Grand Fury. I had purchased this police car early in 1990's from a very large toy shop in Geelong that has disappeared now.











Made in China by Tyco.

Another long time lodger in my collection is this Matchbox Toys Ltd Tyco made in China. The Porsche 944 a very popular model on our speed tracks back in those good old days.








Yes it is made in China too.

I picked this up in good old K-Mart and the date on the box is 2005. So I guess it has been around then that I had picked it up and forgot about it. Now for some reason this 1970 Oldsmobile 442 ended up among my wife's photo collection box and came to life after Roslyn was sorting out some photos for the grandchildren.








Made in China by Mattel Matchbox. The information also states this is a Limited Edition of 20,500. Would this really be true?

Lucky for me I've already seen your Hong Kong copy which is excellent. However this forum is only for what the description states above, Lesney Matchbox King Size and Super-Kings and I like to keep it that way thanking you kindly Gunner Jim.

As you may have seen that I do have a very large collection of them.

Good buy for that price for the full set. Most times when they appear on eBay or the likes they have been separated and sold separate while the trailer is often sold alone minus its plastic body tray.

I just went trough this entire thread Jim, and a good one it is. Thanks for sharing all those models.


I had quite a few King Size growing up so I really like when I get a hold of one. For some reason I have a fetish for the Superkings as well but just the ones with those 5 spoke chrome hubs. The hubs don't match some of the models very well, but I think the hubs are really sharp looking. I try to grab those models when I can. So far I have a few police, ambulance, wrecker/recovery, a Porsche and a transport.

Nice to have the less common White Grand Prix car on the trailer, it is normally the Yellow version. I had this set when new and thought it was great and I even got another Red Grand Prix car to go with it. 


More models waiting to be returned to my collection!
