Back to posting my vacation finds. This is a Matchbox Model of Yesteryear Daimler Type A12. It was the second model Y-13 in the Matchbox line and is said to be the best selling of all the Yesteryears. This was released in 1966 and removed in 1977. There does seem to be a bit of confusion of when it was discontinued.
There is a tendency on these for the radiator to be missing. As in almost all of them. I made sure I got one with the radiator. I have one with a missing radiator already which has been sent to the curio table.
Photo #3 has information on the actual vehicle.
This model was made in either 1968 or 1969.
