Matchbox King-Size No.K-22 Dodge Charger

The Lesney Matchbox King-Size K-22 Dodge Charger became the second Passenger Car to join the range in 1969, Like the K-21 Mercury Cougar it also featured 'True Guide Steering', Clear plastic windows and a silver grille that was cast as part of the baseplate, It had rubber tyres on chrome plated hubs and it is usually found with a blue plastic interior but a very small number have been found with a dark yellow interior which was also shown in the illustration of the car on the back of the F type window box, The front of the box shows a Red Charger which may have been the original colour scheme before it was finally decided that it would be issued in blue.
Like the K-21 this one was also modified when in 1971 it returned to the range as the orange or pink/orange K-22 Dodge Dragster complete with 'Dinamite' or 'Bender' labels.
