    A mundane use for a Mercedes but then it is truck and not a luxury car. This is the MB-11 Scaffolding Truck released in 1969 and sold through 1971. It was only sold in this configuration in 1969. In 1970 it was switched to Superfast and became a racing scaffolding truck which is probably why it had a short run.
    The fun feature is that has a scaffolding which has been put together in photos 3 and 4. In the other photos the scaffolding is in the back of the truck. A bit more play value than rolling across the floor.
    Now for the exciting box section. It is an F style box and normally I go through when certain box styles were used versus when the model was produced. But this was the box used in 1969 and the model from 1969 and that is that.

      I like this. That's a cool unique load and I'm amazed how large and high the the assembled scaffolding is! Another Matchbox Monday home run 'Apache.

      Thomas, there should still be detectable levels of THC on the truck and scaffolding if this is the same one. There will probably some mud and Boonesfarm vomit residue on the scaffolding also.

      Thank you very much Thomas. Toyrebel gave a better reply than I could come up with.
