Matchbox 63b Airport Fire Tender

Matchbox 63b Airport Fire Tender

Ref: 30299

Good, Box Fair

Price: 34.50

This model is based on the Alvis Salamander, with bodywork inspired by Pyrene and Foamite fire tenders. In red with silver-grey base and rear deck and silver grille. The hoses, ladder and side lettering and all white plastic. This one is an early issue with a silver (unpainted metal) foam cannon on the roof; the later gold ones are much more common. The base is cast with 2 side braces and fitted with white plastic leaf springs front and rear.

In good condition, there is some paint rubbing to the raised body lines but the cannon and plastic parts are intact and the axles are bright with only the slightest marks. The type E1 box is not so good, with some crushing and one end flap detached, the other hanging by a thread.

Scale: 1:61
Length: 61mm.
Approx Years: 1964 - 1968
Condition: Good, Box Fair
