Vehicle HistoryEdit

Produced from 1997-2002, the first generation Ford Expedition (UN93) is a full size SUV offered in a 4 door SUV body style. Replacing the Bronco, the Expedition is Ford's answer in the mid size SUV market, sharing components and parts with the 10th generation 97 Ford F-150 and is competition with the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.

The Matchbox Ford Expedition is based on the pre facelift model produced from 1997-1998. It made its debut for the 1-75 mainline under the Ranger Patrol series. The casting had a number of MB360 and was in production from 1999-2017 until it was discontinued. A variation of this casting with a light bar was issued called the Ford Expedition Police. The casting returned in 2018, retooled for easier assembly. The two slots that attached the body into the rear bumper has been replaced by a rear rivet that goes through the roof. The casting now has a number of MB1132 and been in production ever since.
