  • Matchbox Ford Galaxy Fire and Police Cars

    These are some of my favorite castings from matchbox๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ They came out in the late 60โ€™s I think. I remember way back in 69 or 70 my grandmother bought me a regular wheels Ford Galaxy Fire Chief from a local candy store๐Ÿ‘ That was my first Matchbox๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ I remember they had a big matchbox display case in the candy store and they would go behind the case and slide the door open and take out the box with the car you choose. Then the owner would take the car out of the box to make sure it was mint, no chips๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ WOW those were the days๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ I was also lucky to find a Transitional Ford galaxy Fire Chief with superfast wheels. This particular one now is very expensive, especially the police Transitional Ford galaxy. Iโ€™m glad I purchased it in the early 90โ€™s because it goes for a hefty price๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Nice ones - in some ways it was to bad that the police Galaxy was replaced before the superfast era. I recall in my younger days my cousin and I trying to paint a couple of the Galaxy police cars in the green and white colors of the county sheriff's cars for the State of Washington - sadly neither one of us were good at painting.
