Matchbox 1-75 Regular Wheel pre-production & colour trial models
is one of my main fields of interest, prototypes, pre-production and
colour trial models. These are models in early stage of development to
check the correct fit of all parts, casting details and finally the
possible body & interior colour combinations. If you got any kind of
such pre-pro model for sale ( or would be interested in a trade against
any of my listed models ) feel free to contact me.No. 35C Merryweather Fire Engine
One of the most interesting models i ever had to offer: the
unreleased No. 35C Merryweather Fire Engine. This model was due to
replace the Snow Trac and was supposed to be issued as a new model in
july 1969. Just days before production started Lesney made the decision
that from this day on only "Superfast" models would be produced and this
model was converted to Superfast wheels without beeing ever made with
the older Regular Wheels. Would have been an fantastic looking model in
red with the silver wheels!
Metallic silver body, black
plastic base and interior, clear windows and domelights, silver wheels
with black tyres, base without copyright year cast but already with the
"No.35" on it. Lots of casting differences to the later production
castings: no running boards on both sides, no panels cast above the side
flaps/shutter doors ( the panels had to be added for the labels ), the
rear section still has the four openings on the top cast open. Extremly
rare model in fantastic near mint condition.
Model condition: 9.5
