U.S Postal Service Vehicles

In 1912, the Post Office was like a bank, enabling Americans to save for the future with the Postal Savings System.  Mail was often delivered in a 1912 Ford Model T Postal Truck bearing the famous U.S Army poster with Uncle Same saying ”I Want You” and now this classic delivery vehicle of the World War I era is captured in one of six die-cast replicas in the only Matchbox collection ever authorised by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).

Each model captures a pivotal moment in USPS history
