I consider the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time. I also love the 1963 Cadillac Miller Meteor Ambulance/Hearse. I don’t have the Matchbox hearse, but I do have two of the ambulances.
The first one is from the 2012 Beach series.
The second one is from 2016.
According to the Matchbox Cars Wiki, the models from 2013 and before had a metal roof (the base has the text “MB780”) while the models from 2015 to 2016 had a roof window (the base has the text “MB994”). I suspect the change was made to reduce costs (by reducing the amount of metal), but I have no complaints. I like the version with the roof window better because it adds play value by giving a better view of the car’s interior.
The next two Matchboxes are so beautiful, I had to buy them even if they are not the type of cars I usually collect.
The Matchbox ’59 Chevy Wagon first came out in 2017, but this one is from 2018.
The Matchbox ’51 Hudson Hornet also first came out in 2017, and this one is also from 2018.
I love their colors, especially the dark cerulean of the Chevy wagon.
