To the Vic­tor be­long the spoils

Match­box Sale, Vec­tis, Thorn­aby, York­shire, 26 April

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

A rare red-bod­ied Match­box Reg­u­lar Wheels No.45a Vaux­hall Vic­tor sold for £2600 at the Vec­tis Match­box Sale on 26 April. Es­ti­mated at £1-1.2k, it had once been fixed to a model rail­way lay­out judg­ing by the glue on the wheels but still achieved a price that some read­ers won’t have paid for the real thing!

The sale also in­cluded sev­eral unique items from the col­lec­tion of a for­mer Match­box em­ployee, plus mod­els from other big col­lec­tions. A Su­per­fast No.29b rac­ing Mini pre­pro­duc­tion colour trial ex­am­ple also made £2600, while a Reg­u­lar Wheels No.31c Lin­coln Con­ti­nen­tal reached £2500. ■ www.vec­
