One nice thing about extending my stock to include Whizzwheels is that I can include this model. Here is an example of Corgi getting things a lot better. This is an accurate model in many ways too, apart from the digits on the boot panel (but then these aren’t as bad as some were!)

There’s chrome around the windows for the first time and the doors close in line.

This example has the earlier, quite decent-looking wheels too. It was available from 1972 all the way through to 1979 and had at least one wheel change along the way and maybe more when I start looking more closely. These are the better of the two I’ve seen, though.

It is in superb condition, virtually as new throughout, and an essential element of a collection with this classic SL shape.

It is most frequently found in shades of metallic blue, significantly different in the later years, and white. There is also a very rare metallic pale green version
