Found this Cat Matchbox Lesney No1 today when i was messing about with some new settings on my 3030: M1A Caterpillar Earth Scraper, issued 1957. Pity it hasnt got the earth scraper with it :( seems the driver is a bit headless as well, but the paint is in very good condition.



Heres what the original looks like.

Hi small car finders,

Two More:

Lesney Commer pick-up MkVIII  No 50  (1958)

Packard Convertible  No 14 (circa 1959/61)  (made in England but no Lesney name??)

Enjoy
Cheers
Jacko

A toy collector has commented/ Reply #38 The Packard Convertible is not Lesney but Budgie Toys a Lesney competitor of the era.

This tough guy has fallen through 20 feet of sand erosion to be found on the beach bedrock by me this morning. 14/3/2013

Wonder how many years its been buried. :-\
