I wish Matchbox had released the good designs instead of canning them like these two beauties

Love that Singer. The GMC is my favorite casting of that era.

I have seen a few Singers for sale over the years - but never an American Express!

Not any more! Always wanted the British Legion van as well. Neither of these were ever released. The box art was progressed for the "poppy" van.

Love the British Legion van Bob. It was to be part of the Collectibles range as YCH05 after the RSPCA van and before the Macca's set but never made it, hence YCH05 has always been missing ! Not sure why the poppy people never liked it as a stunning design but perhaps there was not enough money in it for them. Does it say on the box if any monies from sale of the model were to be donated to the Legion at all?

The pictures for the Singer are no longer showing. Is it the GMC? I have one that the original owner won at auction at the Hershey convention for $700.00. I have to sell it for his widow. Any takers?

It is the green GMC Bob but US$700 is very high. Probably more like $200 -$250 for it nowadays as there are a few about. Auction prices at conventions are generally high to start with plus it would have been one of the first to be auctioned. A nice model but.....
