Matchbox 31b Ford Fairlane Station Wagon

Ref: 33912

Fair. Unboxed

Price: 27.00

This is an early issue of the 31b Ford Fairlane which was produced briefly in the same yellow as the previous 31a model (the common version of 31b is in metallic green with a pale pink roof). This rare early version can be distinguished from the 31a by its clear glazed windows and twin headlights. The headlights and grille are silver, and the rear lights are red. The base is maroon and the wheels are silver plastic wheels on rounded axles.

This model is in fairly good condition but the paintwork on the bonnet and leading edge of the roof has 'gone crinkly'. I can't tell whether this is due to an impurity in the casting or the paint itself, or whether it has been over-painted. The lower part of one side also has rather matt finish, which may be a production error as there is no obvious sign of over-painting. All the rest of the paintwork appears normal. The windows are completely undamaged and the tow hook is intact. There is some surface rust on the axles.

A good gap-filler for your collection at a fraction of the price of a mint example.
