This model spanned several editions. Starting with normal shaped wheels and a tin hook in 1969, then getting cast wheels and a grey plastic hook in 1970. In 1971 Whizzwheels would be fitted and more changes of interior and hook type followed before a lighter apple green shade replaced this as the 438 that you would get in a box.

So this version with cast wheels and the older style interior and a grey plastic hook is not likely to have been around for that long, maybe a year or so.

This example is in very nice condition all round. Clear screens and bright paintwork. There are a few small marks on the paintwork at leading edges but the suspension is sound, wheels clean and the hook is intact. It also has the correct spare wheel on the bonnet.
