I remember the Lesney Matchbox models very well.  I had several when I was a younger, many years younger.  I used them with my HO scale model trains.  However, I do not think I had any MGs.

In 1993, Matchbox reissued the MGA in its MATCHBOX ORIGINAL Series. This time in British Racing Green.

The original top casting was used but a there was a different base, this time in the body colour rather than red.
