Matchbox was founded by Leslie Smith and Rodney Smith in England. The first models fit inside a matchbox, hence the name. However, over the years the cars have grown bigger. They’re considered to be S scale. Since they were an international company, they had a number of car models from all over the world. Their cars have a great attention to detail as well as smooth-moving parts. Matchbox’s newer diecast cars have features such as opening doors and hoods, as well as a number of others. They also offer lots of series that are geared specifically towards collectors.
Matchbox diecast cars have always been detailed, one of their biggest selling points, especially when the company first started up. Matchbox is just one of the brands of die cast cars that Double Play Hobby Consignments offers. See our selection below.
