Hi All,

For those of you who know me, know that my husband designs Matchbox diecast cars. This past weekend he previewed the 2019 Matchbox line at the Collectors Convention in Albuquerque, so I can now share that there will be a 1959 Dodge 4 door police car coming out next year! I'm excited about this one

Here are some photos from the line and closeups of the first model- this is a 3D print that reflects what the tooling will become.

This is wonderful! Any plans for other Forward Look cars? That '59 Dodge will be Badass!

There have been requests for some, but nothing else in the pipeline just yet.

I have been begging for a '60 Chrysler/DeSoto for decades. No luck at 1/64th scale. M3 made one, but it is laughably bad. I look forward to getting many copies of this Dodge.

Here's a decent '60 Saratoga model https://www.rarelocos.com/fr/kim-classics/6946-1-kim-classics-wester...

Yes, I do have one

UPDATE! I have yet to find one at the store, but I've been told these are showing up in the single pack, 5-pack, and 9-packs where ever Matchbox is sold. Here are some photos of the final model. This is a first production piece from the factory, which is why there are numbers stamped on the roof. The models in the store will not have this number.
