1939 Rio pickup, Matchbox Models of Yesteryear
The Rio pickup was part of a series vintage pickups done by Matchbox. I acquired mine in late 1999 when they were likely current. The wheelbase is 2.81 and the length is 4.62, front overriders to tailgate folded up. Looks pretty close to 43rd to me. Cream body, maroon wheels, spare tire mounted on the right side of the bed forward of the rear fender. Nice chassis detail.
