Big things with little cars

Here is the Lesney Matchbox Mercedes Coach from my recent hawl of vintage diecasts. All of the casts were from the late 60's and early 70's and are in great condition. This particular cast does have a small piece of the framework missing and another small bit cracked, that made cleaning a little bit difficult as I didn’t want to break it more. I may attempt to glue the cracked piece back together to prevent it from becoming a bigger problem.

It appears that you could push the tab at the front to lift the roof off and access the interior cabin. I am not brave enough to attempt that as I’d hate for it to break.
