As far as the Gift Sets go this is a good one as it comes with King Size Car Transporter. But then the gas station set came with a gas station. And the race car set came with 10 cars including race cars. As seen in the Christmas catalogs and wished for.

The Car Transporter without the cars was first released as the Guy Warrior Car Transporter as M-8 in the Major Pack line in 1964. In 1967 the Major Packs line was discontinued but it lived on as K-8 in the King Size line.
The Ford Zodiac is the odd man out here as the other three are luxury cars.
