1982

information 1982 is an interesting year for the model listings. There were quite a few new models released, but yet the 1982 catalogue shows the current line-up, as well as the new models and their designated MB numbers.

The table below shows this comparison between ‘current’ and ‘future’ releases:

Model No. 1982 Catalogue Release 1982 “Future” Release

MB51 1982_51combine 1982_51
MB72 1982_72bomag 1982_72

What is even more noticable is that MB38, MB41 and MB48 are completely missing from the line-up. In 1983, Matchobx ‘filled’ in these missing models with the following:

MB38 Model ‘A’ Ford Van
MB41 Racing Porsche 935
