Vehicle HistoryEdit

Produced from 1997-2002, the first generation Ford Expedition (UN93) was a full-size SUV offered in a four-door SUV body style. Replacing the Bronco, the Expedition shared components and parts with the tenth generation Ford F-150 and was competition with the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.

The Matchbox Ford Expedition Police is based on the pre-facelift model produced from 1997-1998. It made its debut as part of the 5-Alarm 5 pack. The casting had a number of MB489 and was in production from 1999-2012 until it was discontinued. A variation of the casting returned in 2018, retooled for easier assembly. The separate light bar piece is now part of the window assembly. The casting now has a number of MB1060.
