Models of Yesteryear YMSO4-M; 1912 Packard Landaulet

Models of Yesteryear

According to the box: "The American four cylinder Packard was one of the finest automobiles of its period. This particular model was purchased by Henry Austin Clark Jr and is now at his Long Island Automotive Museum in Southampton, New York"

Matchbox made their model in 1964 and kept it in the range in the same colour scheme through until 1972, there being a special, one-off Connoisseur collection release in cream in 1984 and a white model released in 1996 in the Matchbox Collectibles series.

The core release is always dark red in colour with a black bonnet & seats. The radiator, dashboard & cab floor and spare wheel holder were in plated metal, although from time to time you will find cars where components missed being plated. The steering wheel & column started out plated metal and were replaced with plastic during the production run, the spare wheel carrier originally had four prongs, later releases had a three prong holder and there were changes to the base-plate casting where a raised section was added between the front & rear rivets. None of these factors affect values which are generally lowish as there are a lot of these around.
