This was my weekend garage sale find. We went to a big church sale and I found this on a table with a bunch of unrelated items – the only die cast toy I could see in the entire room. Matchbox first made the GMC Tipper Truck in 1968. There is also a later version with Superfast wheels that is worth quite a bit more than this black-plastic-wheel model, but this one fits nicely with some of my other old Lesney Matchbox cars, especially my GMC Refrigerator Truck. Notice there is a little strip of red and white striped paper that is taped to the inside of the tipper. I don’t know the story behind this, but I think I’ll keep it on there. This little truck has a couple of nice play features: Not only is the tipper fully-functional, but the cab also tips forward to reveal the engine.
