When it was launched in 1963, Matchbox claimed this was the first model saloon car to have opening doors. This is a fairly early example, with maroon bodywork silver bumpers, grille and headlights, cream interior and black base. The wheels are silver plastic with 24 treads.
In good-to-excellent condition, there are five small paint chips on one side and a few smaller rubs around the doors and sills. The type D box has some wear around the flaps, one of which has been repaired with tape on the inside.
