New GT/CS Matchbox?

Has anyone else seen a 1968 GT/CS by Matchbox? I know GreenLight made a few GT/CS & HCS cars, both at larger scale and Hotwheels/Matchbox scale. But this is the first I've seen in Matchbox packaging.

http://cgi.ebay.com/2011-Matchbox-68...item27b8ca891f

The seller is in the UK. Wonder if they got released there first??

Mike: Does that not look like Brittany Blue with black strips? Quite ironic! I might need to buy a whole case of them! The real one is pretty close to being trailer-able to bring it home finally...took some perseverance just to get the seized brakes loose. I'll be in touch to get you that original headlight.
