1975 Matchbox Speed Kings Javelin AMX

When I went to the Village Flea Market a few weeks back, my plan was to pick up the Zamac Chevrolet SS that I had scouted out on a previous visit. So I was pretty happy when, in addition to the Chevrolet SS, I walked out with a handful of loose blackwall Hot Wheels and late 70s/early 80s Matchbox cars, a late-90s carded Matchbox Jeep for my friend Brad, and this – the 1975 Matchbox Speed Kings Javelin AMX.

I don’t see these larger-scale (1:43ish) Matchbox models very often, but I do have the Bertone Runabout that I found at a garage sale. I also have the smaller scale Matchbox AMX. I love the paint and the groovy ’70s decoration. And at $.75, I consider this to be a really nice find.
