Model #256 went down well and was another car featuring steering from a device on the roof. This was one of the best implementations of that.

In dark green and white this had the same opening bonnet and engine compartment at the back as the Safari model but whilst it didn’t come with a friendly plastic rhinoceros you would still have the same wellies in the trunk!

A very shiny baseplate extends to a nice strong and attractive bumper at front and rear and there are even two plastic mud flaps at the rear.

This particular example has good paintwork and suspension but the window is broken and it needs two replacement headlamp units. It actually looks fine on display but will probably mean this one will move to the Black list eventually. In the meantime it is available at a modest price if you need one for your collection.
