Yes James, I believe your correct on that year. I have been a little fuzzy headed myself of late too. With the smokey skies and the heat we had this summer it is not often we get outside. I can't handle the smoke in the air and when the temps get over about 35°C it is too hot outside for me any more. It went up to 45°C and the town it was recorded in always hits the high temps for the country every year lately. The town burnt to the ground that day of high heat. You can even see it on google pro. Look for Lytton, BC and you will see a small town of nothing but ash now.

Does the packaging look like a Christmas stocking? If so, very clever

And only 55 $ cents for the Jensen.....

That's a nice Jensen and it looks like Christmas has come early with that stocking.

I've only managed to find one. It's actually the black wheels version.

Do you have any of the rarer colours?

I never saw the Ford in the shops until I went to Auckland Airport in 1971, it was in the gift set but unfortunately it was in the duty free shop and only available to travellers overseas and I was not travelling
