The original version of this had green hubs but I am not sure when they turned from green to red. Actually I am not sure if they started red and switched to green so sticking with the 1960-1966 range. That is a fairly long life for a Matchbox model.
This seems to be one of the smallest if not the smallest of the King Size models but then tractors are not particularly large. The scale is a bit larger but still not much mass.
A completely uninteresting note about this and others is that on the base plate it is No4 on the base as opposed to K-4 as in later models.
Not many exciting features on this but it looks great. Actually it has no features aside from the wheels turn but again it looks great.
In the last photo I have it with a one of the standard matchbox models to show the size difference.
Stay tuned for exciting skunk action for Taxidermy Tuesday.
