This is the Lincoln (NZ) 4507 Tow Truck issued in the early 1960s as part of the Matchbox Series in orange.
This version of the model is a one piece casting with simplistic detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. The body is sprayed in a single colour, orange. On the under-side the model carries no manufacturer's marks or country of origin. The original axles pass through the bare metal wheels and carry solid wheels (knobbly) and are pinch-clamped to pillar mounts on the body casting, one wide pillar under the bonnet and two thinner pillars under the deck.
