Flea Market Matchbox Finds

These nice late 1970s Matchbox models were part of my recent banner day at the Village Flea Market. At 25 cents apiece, I was happy to take each of these home with me – especially with all of the plastic parts intact and functioning properly.

This Snorkel Fire Engine seems familiar to me. I think one of my childhood buddies might have had one of these.

This Sambron Jacklift reminds me of the Fork Lift from my childhood.

I already had the yellow Diesel Shunter, but this one is in much better shape. The Shunter was originally released in 1978 with metallic green paint.
