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.
Special thanks to the Iron Fairy Cane for its assistance in this post.

    Efesgirl should know! Maybe not. Who owns them now? Volvo?
  2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 months ago
    LOL! DAF made great little cars! I still see them on the roads.

    Karen - yes, now owned by Volvo. Volvo cars are made just up the road from me, at NedCar in Born.

    Thank you very much Efesgirl. Those are cute little cars. I see a lot of Volvo trucks and heavy equipment around here.

    Just like the one in my matchbox case, but in much better shape ... I must have visited more construction sites with mine! Thanks for posting and reminding me of those memories.

    Thank you very much neat.old.stuff. I think this one was old store stock and was never played with.
