    This was introduced in 1968 and sold through 1969 with the regular wheels. After that it was superfast wheels.
    The box here is the F Style box. 1968 most of the models still had E style boxes. I think they had already printed up a lot of boxes so used them until they were gone. By 1969 the F style box was standard. This model only came with an F style box.
    The Ford heavy wreck truck was indeed a heavy wreck truck. It is a bit beefy. The Dodge wreck truck that proceeded it was a standard pickup with a tow rig. Those a bit rare these days as they use flat beds and heavier trucks now.
    For us Americans wreck truck is English for tow truck.

      Another choice item, you've got some of the neatest I've ever. Apache, did Matchbox ever make a green/white BP wrecker in the early 60's. I had some kind of Matchbox wrecker, but I can't remember it very well.

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. They did indeed. The Dodge Wrecker MB 13 was a green and white BP wrecker aka tow truck.

      I love the design of those old Ford Trucks and being a wrecker is an added plus!!
      Very Nice! :)
