Coca Cola Matchbox Car Collectibles

Coca Cola items continue to be among the most desired and collectible by fans of vintage brands like the soda company.

That extends to the diecast car area, and specifically to the Matchbox branded Coca Cola cars and vehicles they've introduced through the years. Many of them are awesome.

In its 'Models of Yesteryear' series, Matchbox released this great replica of 1912 Ford Model T, with "Enjoy Coca Cola" on the side. Although the packaging is bland, the car itself is awesome.



Matchbox released this Coca Cola 1958 Porsche 356a coupe. Now is that a great looking car or what?



Another Coca Cola Matchbox release includes these two great vehicles from the 1950s. They are, on top, 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, and on bottom, the FJ Holden Panel Van.



I love the Coca Cola Matchbox Dodge Coronet Convertible below. That engine looks great, as does the tropical look we all imagine when thinking of going on a vacation.



These two Matchbox Coca Cola collectible cars below were really cool in the day, and it's hard to believe how popular the Chevrolet El Camino was at the time. I remember seeing them all over the place in the 1970s.

As for the 1970 Ford Boss Mustand, what's not to like about this popular car?



Speaking of the 1960s and 1970s, here are a couple of cars that rocked the world back then: the Volkswagon Beetle. How many times did we take trips where we yelled out "slug bug" and gave one of our siblings a hit, or were on the receiving end of one?

Fascinatingly, the Volkswagon Beetle style, in general, has recently made a comeback.



What a great selection of Coca Cola, Matchbox diecast cars to enjoy and appreciate. This is what collecting is all about: quality designs reminding of us of the wonderful days of our youth.
