Then came the convertible Chevy

Then, in order to exploit the collectors market. Matchbox cynically issued a small number (I don't know how many)with brown seats. As things have tuned out there aren't hat many collectors of this series and I'm sure all of the have got one

It was later issued in colours called Matador red and Bombay ivory as part of the Matchbox 40th anniversary series

Hi Wolfie, when I was secretary for our local model club I used to go and collect the new issue models for club members from the model shop.

I had to collect 24 models but we only needed 18 but when I opened the box there were 20 of these Brown models with the Brown Stripes.

May be most of them came to Sydney Australia, then sent on to Perth.

I love Chevrolet Bel Air, I love all american big cars from fifties and sixties. In my opinion the most beautiful cars were made ​​in the fifties and sixties in America. Then came the oil crisis and the aerodynamical wind tunnel...... and all cars started to look almost the same. I have several variations of body and seats colours. Some of them are Code2.

They ARE nice

you have a great display of Chevies

I have many code 2 Dinkies (some more attractive than the Code 1s), but when I set out on this saga I decided to only show code 1s
