NEW OLD MODELS FOUND
The tag says it all. It's all about older models which I have discovered only recently.
This is a set offered by Matchbox under the name 'Super Value Pack'. The idea behind these sets were most certainly to promote and sell older models. The set was available under item # 25823. All the models were produced in China.
This 5 car set included the following 3'' models :
Have also a look at this previous post for other 'Super Value Pack' versions.

I have found this week another Matchbox SuperKings version. This set labeled 'Super Value Pack' includes a red 1:36 scale Volvo 245 DL and a green Monteverdi Hai from Matchbox's 1-75 model range. Matchbox added the Monteverdi for free as a bonus model. The right-hand-drive Volvo 245 DL has a orange-yellow interior. Other features of the car are the usual opening front side doors, the opening tailgate and the large plastic tow bar. This near mint set has been sold today for only 21 €.
This Volvo C30 is a Code 2 model made for Disney by Matchbox. The set was offered as Matchbox Mickey Mouse Clubhouse 5-pack back in 2011.
On the left side of the white car there’s a decal ‘Best Friend’ and a picture of Minnie Mouse.
On the right side of the car there’s a decal ‘Look at that sparkle’.
The interior and base of the model are violet.
Product number is MB711 and the scale of the model is 1:61.

I have found a new colour version of the Volvo XC90 by Matchbox.
This dark green metallic Volvo XC90 has a grey interior.
The model was released in 2006 as #38 of the Superfast product line.
It is a limited edition of 15500 models.
I guess that everybody knows that Matchbox has produced the Volvo 480 ES in the past. But I discovered only recently that the model exists in several slightly different liveries. More obvious are the different packaging variations.
- packed in a matchbox
- white with beige interior
- 'Volvo' marked in blue on the hood
- '480 ES' marked in blue on the side doors
- ( sorry but this this one is missing on the photo )
You will find all these variations in the photo below.
