Matchbox 1968 Ford Heavy Wreck Truck

I haven’t had much luck at garage sales the past few weekends. I brought home a couple of loose cars last Saturday, but they turned out to be not as old as I thought they might be. Just like the old saying: You can’t alway judge a car by it’s wheels.

So here is a nice find from a few seasons ago. The Matchbox Ford Heavy Wreck Truck first came out in 1968 and the prototype version with amber windows can be fairly valuable. This one has seen a little playtime, but it makes a nice companion for the Dodge Wreck Truck from my childhood collection.

  1. Interesting that it is “Esso” when so many of the Matchbox vehicles are “BP”. It also has a hook which my Dodge Wreck Truck is missing.
