Model History[edit | edit source]

The 56 Ford Pick-Up is a casting by Matchbox that debuted for the 1997 Inaugural 2 Pack series. The casting had a number of MB300 and originally produced from 1997 to 2007 when it was discontinued.

The casting returned for 2018 for the Coffee Cruisers 5 Pack, retooled for easier assembly. It has shrunken in size, the details were reworked, and the metal bed is now part of the interior assembly with a visible rear rivet post. The casting now has a number of MB437 and resumed production ever since.
