6c Euclid Dump truck

The listing in the NAMC’s “Catalog of all Series Matchbox Models” (second edition) is extremely difficult to interpret, but does not seem to contain any new variations.
None of AIM's “1-75 Series Regular Wheels” catalogue (second printing, 1983), Stannard, Houghton, or Leake ("Concise Catalogue of 75 Series Matchbox Toys by Lesney" (4th edition, reprinted 2006)) lists any variation not already catalogued by Nick, although Stannard's variation code 6c-9 and.Houghton's identical variation code 6c-15 both point to Nick's variation code 15 being incorrect: the rear wheel entry should read "12.5 x 4.5 twin wheel unit as M9" instead of just "12.5 x 45".
U.K. Matchbox examined the model in vol. 8 no. 2 ((Jun. '84) p46 but did not list any new variations.

Hello Hugh and all,

I believe the order of the first 6 codes and the second 6 codes should be swapped over.
The detailed front wheel with the ring of lug nuts came before the detailed front wheels without the lug nuts.
This is best evidenced by their use on the M9 Cooper Jarrett paired with the base plate with inverted commas introduced in mid 1962.

I also note Nick mentions in the description and lists from code 16 on, the regular bpw as 12.5 x 45 but all mine are 12.5 x 40 as per Stannard code 10 onward. It seems this error is repeated in Houghtons also.

Note to Hugh, in your post above the 4.5 should read 45 ( tread) in second last line.
