How Matchbox Cars are Made – ca. 1962

Who of us didn’t have a collection of miniature toy cars made out of cast iron, which had to survive the abuse of hours of not so gentle play? How many accident did they have to survive, falls from heights, and every terrain that we found for them? Some of use still own those abused treasures and may have even passed them down not at all lightheartedly to their own off-spring.

If you want to throw a nostalgic glance behind the scenes and see how Matchbox cars were manufactured, will treasure those recordings from the British Pathé-archives.
