The Articulated Truck is a three-axle tractor-trailer combo, offered in the 1-75 range. The tractor features a ball and post which fits a socket in the trailer. Though the tractor unit is shared with the Freeway Gas Tanker, and is therefore interchangeable with that model, this seems to be for manufacturing reasons, rather than for play value. Wheel type sometimes varied between the tractor and trailer, even on models packaged together. Colored glazing, a small cab, and no rear window space hide the lack of an interior.
This Matchbox model has been issuedin the following versions:
