1968 Mercedes-Benz Lorry

I picked up this old Matchbox Mercedes truck at a garage sale, where they were selling Ziploc bags of cars, 5 for $1. As I flipped quickly through the bags, those old Matchbox wheels grabbed my attention. When I went to pay for it, the guy did a double-take at me and the bag of cars, then he said “Oh, there’s an old one in there. That’s probably worth some money, huh?” I chuckled, shrugged and handed him my dollar bill. It’s not like it’s worth millions, but it was a nice little find for 20 cents. It wasn’t until I got it home that I realized what great shape it was in. Too bad it’s missing the canopy – if anyone has a spare for sale, please let me know.
