322 Rover 2000 Monte Carlo with original box
There were three original Monte Carlo Rally celebration cars: the #321 Mini, this and #323 Citroen DS19. Each were the earlier standard cars but with jewelled headlights or foglights added and they were very smart variants.
Not easy to track down now in good condition and, because of the subsequent years’ races and different winners, they were not produced for long at all.
This Rover is in a great purple colour - and different to the purple variant of the saloon. It was, I think, my favourite Corgi Toy of all time and my collection model took pride of place on my desk at work and later at home until it disappeared, possibly packed in a box for a move or when I put lots of things into storage a while ago.
This is all original and in good condition, with just some wear to the paintwork on raised edges.
An excellent original box is also available with this model. Very clean and bright, uncrushed but missing one end flap. (Also available without the box - ask for a price).More images
