The Lesney model of the 2d Mercedes trailer was designed specifically to be an addition to the 1e Mercedes truck,
It joined the Matchbox 1-75 series in 1967 and it was in the same livery as the Mercedes truch which was sea green with an orange canopy,
The front axle and towbar were affixed to a turntable so it could steer while it was being towed,
It was fitted with 12.5 x 40 black plastic wheels and there was only two vatiations which were either small or large braces inside the tailboard that supported the plastic canopy,
Also it can have a small or large ejector ring cast underneath,
It has been found with the yellow canopy from the superfast version but this variation has not been included until I can verify which version of the trailer it would come with,
It was packaged in 'E' or 'F' type boxes and is very common, it was converted to superfast wheels in 1970 and was deleted in 1976.
