50th Anniversary Models

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Matchbox in 2003 a range of models were released in a metallic burgundy paint and with far superior tampo and wheels than the regular line. Mattel the owners of the brand however released these in 2002 so as not to conflict with the 35th Anniversary of their main brand ”Hot Wheels”
