Chips and Scratches as seen in photos Year: 1994 Vintage Matchbox Corvette Sting Ray III Purple Pink White Tampos - 1994 Matchbox�is a popular toy brand which was introduced by�Lesney Products�in 1953, and is now owned by�Mattel, Inc. The brand was given its name because the original�die-castMatchbox toys were sold in boxes similar in to those in which matches were sold. The brand grew to encompass a broad range of toys, including larger scale die-cast models, plastic model kits, and action figures. During the 1980s, Matchbox began to switch to the more conventional plastic and cardboard blister packs that were used by other die-cast toy brands such as�Hot Wheels. The box style packaging was re-introduced for the collectors' market in recent years, particularly with the release of the "35th Anniversary of Superfast" series in 2004. About Die Cast Cars: The first diecast cars were made in the 1940s and have since captured the imagination of children and adult collectors alike. Today, the most popular brands are Hot Wheels, Matchbox, and Tonka Types include passenger cars, sports cars, NASCAR cars, construction vehicles, and service vehicles. Diecast cars range from as large as 1:12 and 1:18 scale to as small as 1:87 and 1:148 scale. The 1:64 scale is the traditional and most popular scale for diecast cars as well as most miniatures and models. Diecast toys�are made using the die casting method, a process that forces molten metal into a mold cavity under high pressure. Diecast toys are made of metal but often have details made of plastic, rubber, and even glass. Diecast toys are bubble wrapped and shipped in a sturdy mailer to assure a safe journey.
