Matchbox Tuesday, Part 2: 2013 Mainline 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood & Porsche 911 GT3...
We will continue our makeshift Matchbox Tuesday with a look at two more Matchbox models just released in Batches C and D.
Starting with the Caddie. With all the talk about Matchbox's current direction, the folks in El Segundo show that they still know how to do a classic car. The casting has been around awhile, and looks great here in a very simple side deco, highlighting how nice the model is. I don't know if this model was originally slated to be a convertible and modified with a hardtop, but the roof is plastic. To me it makes sense because it allows the model to stay realistically two-tone. She's a beauty.
Matchbox 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood (2013 Mainline):
Next, another collector favorite, the Porsche 911 GT2. This version looks good with the GT3 side deco, and I don't mind the extra striping as well. I would like to have seen the headlights done, but that has been the case with a few models.
Matchbox Porsche 911 GT3 (2013 Mainline):
Once again, Matchbox (usually) Monday is brought to you by MVE Collectibles...
