Shovel Nose, with cockpit open. Josiah Carberry Collection.

The K-32/40 Shovel Nose is a King Size fantasy Matchbox vehicle, featuring a wedge-like shape, oversized rear wheels, and an opening cockpit. It appeared in yellow, as a race car (K-32); and in red, as a fire chief's car (K-40). In both cases, the base is marked "K-32/40 Shovel Nose", but packaging for the red version identified it as Blaze Trailer.


Shovel Nose was issued in the following versions:
