1957 : Matchbox Series

1957 and the range now grows to 42 models in total, the other big change in this year is the first replacement models.  With production changes and some tooling breaking it was decided that some of the new models would slot in to the place of those models that will no longer be produced.
The practice of replacing models within the range would continue for decades to come.
