4d Dodge Stake Truck

Postby Idris » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:08 am

None of the NAMC’s “Catalog of all Series Matchbox Models” (second edition), 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.
U.K. Matchbox did not examine the model.

a) blue green
b) green
c) darker green
d) dark green

I have it mentioned yet. There are there different size of the chassis rails. The dimensions differs slightly from Nick´s list. It depends where it is measured, because the rails have a trapezoid shape.

I have two different variation with blue green stakes. The chassis have the width of the rails 1,1mm and 1,5mm. I suppose that there is 1,3mm variation also.
