    For those of you in the US Removals is English for Moving.
    This is MB 46 the Pickfords Removal Van. That is what is embossed on the base. It was made from 1961-1967 but was made in blue until 1963. In 1963 it was painted green which is how it how it stayed through the end of its run. The blue version had gray wheels and the green version had black wheels aka regular wheels.
    The interesting feature of this model is the rear roll up door which actually rolls up just like a real roll up door. Do not think my stuff would fit in a full sized version of this. Perhaps it would if I got rid of the furniture the cats destroyed.

      Great moving van, love that realistic roll up back panel

      Pickfords are a well known removal firm in the UK, and I’m pretty sure they have moved us more than once! I seem to picture their lorries as being dark blue though!
    4. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Such a great Matchbox car! I too love the roll up back panel.

      Thank you very much Caperkid.

      And thank you very much Newfld.

      Thank you very much AdeleC. The first two years these were made in dark blue.

      Thank you very much Scott. The door seems to be a big hit.

      And thank you very much nutsabotas6. You are too kind.

      Just what I need (but maybe bigger than Matchbox size)
      Pickfords are still going (i think)

      Very cool model! the door system is really ingenious, and the condition... I have to say i love this Matchbox Monday´s series idea, ill try to participate with my modest Matchbox collection, Cheers!

      Thank you very much elanski. My matchbox van may be a tad too small.

      Thank you very much Lata. Your additions will be welcome on Matchbox Monday.
