What is this discussion about?

Nice little car! I always thought the square headlights made those '75 and '76 Caddys much sharper than the '73 and '74 models. The Chevy dealer in my hometown also sold Caddy, but they were few and far between. I used to pick up the smaller brochures for Caddy there, and if feeling sneaky, I'd reach into the one salesman's office where the big 'prestige' catalogs, with the tissue paper inside the front cover, were kept!

I've seen some experts speculate it could bring 3-4K or maybe more. Crazy.

It's not easy to find in that color, but shouldn't be more than $50 for a mint one.
The key on my example is those whitewall tires, which are not standard issue. Apparently they are a custom feature or some kind of unknown special edition.

Wow! My cousin had that Dodge wrecker back in the day. Who would think it would be worth that much?

I like the looks of that era ('61-71) Dodge truck. I don't recall that particular Matchbox, though.
Anybody remember "Lassie" on TV? That era Dodge truck was used throughout. I always remember asking my Dad why it looked like the wheels were going backwards when the truck was moving forwards!

Your cousin probably didn't have one with a green cab like that. That's why it is so expensive, rare.
I remember a Dodge Sweptside on Lassie (the show ran continuously on Nickelodeon in the 80s). Also Fords. And the old man who had a Model T that ran on railroad tracks, I wanted that when I was a little kid!

I see. I had to go back to see the difference. He probably had the yellow cab with the green body that's only worth around $16 per the other wreckers offered.

The normal wrecker is extremely common. I guess that makes the rare one even more special.
