    The Foden Cement Mixer was released in 1961 and was sold through 1967. In 1968 it was replaced by the GMC Tipper Truck. The Foden was the second #26 the first being the ERF Cement Mixer. Back in the early days of Matchbox a model would be replaced with a like model ie a fire truck with another fire truck.
    The box here is an E Style box that was sold from 1964-1967 so that makes it fairly easy to put this model in that period from 1964-1967. Noting it has Cement Lorry on the end flaps. Apparently they didn't Americanize this one,
    The mixer rotates on this but it requires finger power and imagination.

      Also requires the right noise, which should vary in pitch depending on whether you imagine it full, empty or emptying.

      That's a great Matchbox cement mixer. The original box really makes it!!

      Thank you very much Scott. Too bad 2D is written on each side but the box still looks good.
