Matchbox ‘Washington Post’ 1930 Model A Van

The Washington Post Delivery Van was produced by Matchbox as one of the die cast cars in their “Power of the Press Series’ in 1993.

Having been made overseas, this 1:43 scale die cast model is a very good representation of the actual van. The attention paid to details by the manufacturer is quite impressive with the business address being displayed on both doors and the hood showing ‘pin-striping’. The grill and front bumper are plastic. The wheels appear to be rubber with plastic chrome spokes – and there is a spare tire side mounted on the driver’s side.

Listed below are some of the features of this Matchbox Ford Van:

Blue in color – including the chassis

Monument tampos on both sides of the cargo area

Rubber tires with chrome spokes

Light gray interior

License plates on front and read (36-311 MISS 1930)

Chrome body mounted head lights

Chrome front bumper and grill

1:43 Scale in size

Clear plastic windows and windshield 

The underside is embossed with: 

Y-21 / Y-22
