The Matchbox Best of World '93 Foxbody Mustang LX SSP is...uh, well...Foxy...
You know that feeling when you approach the pegs and see them overflowing? You get there and rummage through, thinking that one model you have been looking for is bound to be there. But the more you search, it starts to become abundantly clear that someone got there before you and found what you were looking for.
I think that is going to happen with this Matchbox Best of the World Mustang.
The CHP debut of the Foxbody was like that. It seemed it was months after its debut that you might find one hanging on the pegs, and even then it was an event to find one. And for good reason. This casting is a star.
With all the goodwill Matchbox is bringing back this year, I think it is the Foxbody that started it. Moreso than the A100 and BMW 1M, mainly because as great as those castings are, they will still released among a sea of exaggerated off-road nincompoops. But the Foxbody begat the Alfa 4C and Chevy Silverado, which begat the Tesla Model S, Lambo LM002, BMW M5, Caddie One, and on and on. The '93 Mustang is from an era that isn't yet classic, and not at all current, and it is a police car. A wonderful, unique choice for a $1 car.
And now it's donning some stunning formalwear for the Best of line. So let's have a gander.
Before we do, go get your best headphones or speakers, crank this song from Jungle in the video below, and only then you can scroll through the photos. In slow motion. This model is too cool to NOT have a soundtrack.
(Then go back and learn the dance moves because they will be the happy dance steps you do when you actually find this model. Then it will be your soundtrack when you come around the corner in slow motion with your Mustang in hand, while that next collector looks in awe. You badarse you.)
Alright, bob that head and check this beauty out.
