Matchbox Models of Yesteryear Y16-4 1923 Scania-Vabis Post Bus

Ref: 38874

Limited edition
Excellent, box Excellent

Price: 12.00

This unusual subject is a Swedish post bus specially adapted to reach rural communities in snowy conditions. The rear wheels are fitted with half-tracks while the front wheels are fitted with skis. I don't think I would have felt particularly safe as a passenger in one of these!

Finished in yellow with black chassis and light grey roof. Blue stripe around edge of roof and body waistline, with postal service emblem on the sides. Brown interior, gold plated grille surround and headlights. Gold 12-spoke wheels.

This example is as new; there is a slight box rub on the front edge of the roof. The red gold presentation box is excellent, just a small tear on one edge of the lid, and is complete with packing piece, historical fact sheet and protective plain outer box. One of a limited edition of 60,000.

Scale: 1:49
Length: 1211mm.
Approx Years: 1988 - 1989
Condition: Excellent, box Excellent
