This model is the Matchbox Yesteryear Y13-3-C-5 Crossley (1918) in cream with gloss black chassis and ice blue front and rear canopies with white "Carlsberg" on a dark green background on the rear canopy sides. It comes packed in the original straw coloured box. As this item comes with an unlisted ice blue grille I have coded it 5b for my collection.

The model has no opening parts. The cab tilt, rear canopy and radiator grille are all ice blue. The seats are dark red. There is no glazing.
