1980 Matchbox 48 Car Case

A friend of mine was cleaning out a garage and came across this old Matchbox case. I don’t know much about these but I see there are a few on eBay and the plastic top halves were apparently molded in different colors. This one is pretty beat up – it’s missing a few stickers, has one broken rivet, and only has two of the four car trays – but it’s an interesting item nonetheless.IMG_0934 IMG_0935 IMG_0936
