My involvement with these Matchbox Collectibles began in 1998 when I was selling Bronco parts at the Carlisle Truck Nationals show. I was approached by a couple of designers from Mattel about a new project they were working on which was a series of detailed 1:43 scale early 4x4 vehicles. I worked with them and provided them with two of our real Broncos (a 1966 U13 Roadster and a 1974 Sport) as well as my collection of original Dealer literature as reference materials.
This was the second of three Bronco diecasts that resulted from that effort. I became a dealer and sold dozens of cases of of these shortly after they were released. I recently pulled out a few mixed cases of remaining new old stock which I had stashed away and am now offering these for sale again.
When these were released in 1999 they were by far the most detailed Bronco collectible made to date. Even all these years later and a huge wave of new Bronco collectibles by other companies, these are still by far one of the best made yet.
This was the second diecast produced of the Bronco tooling and was part of a series knows as The Great Outdoors Collection which was a series of 6 early 4x4's, each of which had unique hunting or fishing themed graphics and accessories.
