The Matchbox Express Delivery is a realistic generic casting based on a real step van, a medium duty truck offered as a 2 door van body style. These step vans are designed with sliding doors in mind for delivery business, whether for mail or a package.
It made its debut in the 2010 mainline under the sub series of City Action in White with “Speedy E-XPress” Livery on the sides. The casting had a number of MB787 and was produced in 2010 before being discontinued. The model returned in 2011, retooled for easier assembly. The sliding doors were sealed shut, and the former metal body and plastic base became a plastic body and metal base. The 2018 release also removed the ability to open the rear door, being sealed shut as well. It also has an updated copyright year of 2011. It now has a number of MB813 and has been in production ever since.
- Modified to plastic body w/ metal base and closed-style front doors in 2011. That version will be MB813 instead of MB787.
