In July 1969 this replaced the 155 model that had been going strong since 1964. It was also the second to feature a clever bit of engineering with accurate steering. Moving the driver from left to right steered the car. Brilliant.

This model had the later flat profile tyres with Corgi branding and tread, large on the back and small at the front in what appear to be wider sizes than on the slaoon models issued with a similar tyre.

This example is in very good condition, small marks to the nose area and rear only. Otherwise the orange paintwork is great and the white paintwork too. The decals are all present but a little dirty now. the mirrors and spoiler are present, along with the exhausts and chrome engine. The spoiler can be adjusted too.
