It is still Monday here so another Matchbox car for matchbox Monday. This one is the D.A.F. Girder Truck. What D.A.F. is I do not know. I will have my staff look it up later.
This car was introduced in 1968 and is in the E Style box. This is important as another site I look up to check the box dates claims the F style box was the box being used in 1968. I had always thought the F box was first released in 1969 but I have been going by what I saw on that site. I am sure everyone is quite excited by this information.
An fun feature for this vehicle is that it came with 12 girders that could be linked together to make a building under construction.
