474 Ford Anglia Wall's Ice Cream Van (Musical Edition) with original box

235 GBP

Although the Ford Thames van was a common sight on our roads, Corgi decided just to feature it in ice cream van livery! Twice. In March 1965 447 appears in a nice box with a little boy in an inner card display, costing 6/11d. In October 1965 we get 474 and a huge knob in place of the boy and no scene card. This costs almost double the price at 13/-.

The idea was probably good, including a selection of chimes that played when you wound the handle. I believe you can even select the different tunes but unfortunately most stopped working shortly afterwards. This one too.

It is in beautiful original condition with a super original box and these are very much sought after, even if the knob doesn’t do much now.
