Hi this is my regular wheels display on a original shop display , Australia went to dollars and cents in February 1966 , and matchbox stayed at 35 cents until 1970 , 1 australian dollar bought $2.50 United States dollars up until 1982 . So while the American collector was paying 59 cents per model we paid 35 cents , and in 1970 when the price was raised to 37 cents we thought robbery . But hotwheels were very expensive here priced around 70 cents , so did not sell that well . I have a lot of items to post look forward to hearing from other collectors regards andy .
