The 1st Matchbox I've found at a booty in weeks, getting so hard to find nowadays.

Nice little collection Tim and presumably cheap as chips!

The Rolls-Royce looks post 'Trim Strip' issue, narrow wheels of course, but the wheel size is difficult to determin.

Thank's Tim. Small diameter wheels and with the Cherry Red body colour, very nice combination.

I have never actually measured the diameter of these wheels to see if they are the same size as the small wheels fitted to many of the 'Superfast' models like the Mk2 Ford Caortina, I dont have a Micrometer!

If you haven't got this one, you can have it.

Yes, the Caortina was easy, it's the Cortina I can't find...
