Matchbox will be giving away some special edition cars at the 2017 Japanese Classic Car Show this Saturday. They’ve provided a sneak peek at the packaging of at least one of them, the 1970 Datsun 510 Rally Car car. This will have different graphics than the mainline release, and if you look closely at the door, you will see a familiar logo.
This is, of course, a homage to the Datsun 510 that won the 1970 Safari Rally. In Japan, this was far more well known of a race car than the BRE 510s, and even inspired a movie. We are flattered to have the JNC inkan on a Matchbox car, our first! These will be raffled at the Nissan booth at JCCS this Saturday. It will be the only place to get them, so please stop by and see our friends at Matchbox and Nissan this Saturday. The JCCS will be held at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. See you there!
