This is one of the Matchbox Major series (Pre-Kingsize) and numbered M4, it was released in 1965 and remained until 1967 when it become K4 in the Kingsize range.

This was the only colour option produced, although I believe a grey tyre version exists.

The real truck.

The GMC B-model 7000 series are the trucks that came with the GMC Twin-Six V12 petrol Engine. These engines sat more under the floor of the cab than the bonnet  of the truck, so they are a Cabover design.
