Corgi Toys 1956-73

273 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow with original box in cream and light blue

140 GBP
A superb and unmarked model. This comes in pearlescent white over Wedgwood blue, with lots of opening features and Golden Jacks take-off wheels including a spare in the boot.
This also comes with an excellent original box and what I particularly like is the dual pricing showing the £sd and decimal prices side by side which some shops did in early 1971 after decimilisation in February.
The box is, rarely, really good and not even the cellophane window shows any wear, still nicely curved as it would have been when new. The previous illustrations here were for a box that wasn’t quite as good as this so I have updated the car and box photos, having sold the other one. There is also a nice RR logo badge attached to the box.
On the reverse is great image of what looks like a motor show hall with a Triumph Dolomite and Sunbeam Rapier in view too. Lovely
