This is the rare red edition of the model - not easy to find now in good condition.

Issued in 1958, most of these models were baby blue, a few silver and rather fewer this shade of red. It was not issued with a driver. This has nice light brown seats and a blue-tinted screen which is original and intact. Often, these screens get damaged and replaced.

It has a RN7 decal on the bonnet and nice headlights which are still clear and attractive. Many get scratched or faded. The all-important wheels and tyres are all in good order. I have no idea how one would change them so do bear this in mind when buying this type of model.
