    No box but I did scan the 1967 catalog for a box-like image of the Aveling-Barford Tractor Shovel. I believe that is English for a front end loader. Looks like a big engine in that thing. The little metal man helps to give the scale. Also the catalog picture gives the size in inches and millimeters.
    There are two versions of this. One has a red shovel like this example and the other is the same yellow color as the rest of the tractor.
    The shovel section on this one requires finger support. Like may of the early Matchbox models this one had no dampening system to hold into position. Also the metal man is a feature of early Matchbox models. Some of the later passenger cars had plastic people but most just had imaginary people..

      Nice Matchbox share. I like construction equipment and as usual their color selection is excellent. Imaginary people were a necessary part of a toy vehicle to bring out the most fun and joy when playing with it......but why did they always tell me to kill somebody?

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. Those imaginary people! They do the darndest things.

      It is amazing how these dozers were made back then with no cab protection at all, before worker protection laws came along.

      WesternPA-Collector. Many fire fighters are killed in bull dozer rollovers in brush fires due to no safety cage.
