A lot of money for a 30+ year old model - but with the crap the Mattel are putting out this is worth more than the Gold Bus.

If only mbx64 knew what proper Matchbox was.............

F**king happy at the moment - although that was a wedge!


Brilliant Keef. You'll have to post a pic after it arrives. Glad you've finally got it. These sets don't appear every day. In fact they don't appear every year. :D

Should have it delivered on Friday - not sure how I am going to take it home though.........

I will post pix, but it may be a while -

Here is the winning auction:

There is some real tat on ebay, so it was by sheer fluke that I saw and bid for this one.
