Look at that great 'Auto Steer' box for Dan's Mercury, I think I'll just start collecting the empty boxes, there is some delicious examples out there.

I think it just adds that certain EXCITING something for the boys of the period and they could not wait to get home and get the models out of their boxes to test working features such as the 'Auto Steer', fantastic stuff!

The type F boxes have some of the nicest artwork in my opinion. A good place to start your cardboard addiction Ghosty!

my strongest memory is taking the #13 dodge wreck truck out of the F type box...i have christmas pics which ive shown before but you cant see great details unless under a magnifier...i see a #20 chevy taxi in an E type box...but i dont have a memory of opening it or anything...but the F type box with the #13 i remember that vividly...i guess since i was older the memory is better seated in my brain
