Superfast Wheels made since 1969. There are three type of Superfast:
  1. Superfast models 'MADE by Lesney' on the Base Plate.
    When Matchbox was still producing in England the factory did not use Casting and/or Manufacturing numbers on their models. Those were only introduced when the production was moved outside the UK. Alt those models were Made in England or Hong Kong.
  2. Superfast with Manufacturing Number.
    All Models produced outside the UK got at the start of their production an unique Manufacturing number. The number is in fact the number of the Casting.
  3. Some models were during the transition period produced as well as inside as outside the UK. Those models had in the beginning no Manufacturing Number but when produced outside the UK (and NO Lesney on the baseplate anymore) did get a Manufacturing Number in a later stage.

This section covers the Models as Mentioned under point 1.
