MATCHBOX Motorway No. 12

Went antique shopping with my wife today and found a great item related to Matchbox Cars.

It is this Matchbox Motorway from about 1967 or 1968.

It was a really great price and when I got home, I checked it out and other than the boxes for the cars, it appears to be complete.  There were even 4 extra cars!
Basically, a motor pulls a spring that is under the track.  A pin is attached to a car and the pin fits in a grove in the track that catches the spring.  The car is then pulled around the track.
I will be testing it out soon and will let you know the results.
