375 Toyota 2000GT in bright metallic blue with original box

60 GBP
This is a quite beautiful model, despite the Whizzwheels. Corgi produced this in two glorious colours, each using a new vacuum plating that provided a bright blue or purple paint effect that was really bright and highly reflective. It is the 336 James Bond model now with a closed boot and no missiles but otherwise pretty much the same in many respects.

These are not that common now and many have gained chips to the very easily damaged paintwork and/or the aerial is easily broken. This example, though, is really superb and looks like new and comes with its original box. The inner tray is missing but that section is common to many boxes and could be replaced. It also does not really effect the display and the cellophane is excellent and intact.

A very fine example of this sought-after model.
