374 Jaguar E Type 4.2 in red

100 GBP

This is 335 with Whizzwheels and Corgi economised further by closing the doors and if the seats used to tilt they don’t any more.

The wing mirrors are still there and all the lovely detail of the original but the exhaust is now black plastic.

Although a very popular model, you will not find many in 4.2 form because this came in June 1970 but just three months later Corgi started producing the 5.3 litre version which is considerably different.

There are red and yellow versions - both quite scarce. This red one is beautiful, in really superb condition throughout which is quite remarkable. It has taken a year or so to find a good one of these so maybe the red is actually rarer than the yellow after all! I had thought it was the other way round initially.

I don’t think it is appreciated just how difficult it is to track down some of these later models, prices remaining quite low in many areas.
