For a few years before getting the Whzzwheels treatment, Corgi revived this popular little model with a coat of marvellous maroon in 1967. In other respects it is unchanged from the lilac blue with cast wheels and a lemon interior that preceded it.

This example is really good, with just one small chip that is very difficult to see from most angles (on the front nearside wing). The windows are excellent, clean and clear and the suspension sound. The silver paint is one of the best I've seen - often this misses parts of headlamps or grille but this one's very nice.

I have a  good original box for this model too at the time of writing. If you would like that (presently offered with another model) then get in touch and I can advise a price if still available.
