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

The model has no opening parts. The body is White and the chassis is Red; the seats and radiator grille are dark red plastic and the roof is an unlisted smooth, bright red plastic so I have coded it as issue 22b for my collection. There is no glazing.

Coded to the 2002 Yesteryear Book
