This model is the Matchbox Yesteryear Y01-2-A-21 or 22 Ford Model T (1911) in black. It comes packed in the original Type H woodgrain box with the Gold "Y1" lettering on the end flap and white lettering on the top of the box.

The model has no opening parts. The body is black and the chassis is black; the seats and radiator grille are black plastic and the roof is a black, textured plastic so I have coded it as issue 21/22 for my collection. There is no glazing.
