241 Ghia L6.4 copper with original box
The Ghia came in many colours and shades of those colours but this is the scarcest of them all. Copper cars from Corgi are very few and far between and always seem to command high prices as they are simply so difficult to find. (The Chevrolet Sting Ray in bronze, is another example).
This one has really nice paintwork, good chrome and a nice clean interior and undamaged windows. The rear suspension is excellent but, as is so often the case, the front suspension is pretty poor. I have managed to fix this by inserting a piece of rubber in the ‘air filter’ bonnet pop-up device which effectively keeps the body up. It raises the bonnet very slightly but this can be adjusted so it stays in line.
This a very scarce model. I have not seen another in many years of searching.
This is a very fine example of a scarce model and comes with a good box which has two loose small flaps but is otherwise nice and firm. It has some initials scrawled in green felt tip but that is not too unsightly. the really interesting thing is the fact that the illustration has some mistakes in the labelling! Photos to follow soon.
