317 Morris Mini-Cooper Monte Carlo 1964 edition

50 GBP

No.37 on the sides and a chrome lamp on the roof means this is 317 in the confusing world of Corgi’s Mini Coopers. At least this one escaped Whizzwheels treatment.

This is also the one easily identified with the roof light and by having absolutely no jewelled spot lamps, just the normal two big jewel headlamps.

This was around from early 1964 to 1965 when another Cooper rally win meant another model had to come out and that would be 321.

This one has good original RN37 and Monte Carlo decals and the red paintwork is really good. The roof is clean with just a few small marks but most of the light chrome is present. The wheels are bright and the suspension sound and the bumpers are almost unmarked which makes it an attractive one to display.

It is one of the best examples of this quite scarce model that I have had for a while.
