499 Citroen Safari 1968 Winter Olympics with original box

175 GBP

The Citroen Safari first appeared in yellow for a truly ‘Safari’ version and then has four snowy outings, two as #475, #513 and this one. Each is a little different. This one has the blue roof, a big Grenoble sticker on the bonnet and skis and ski poles tucked into the luggage rack. In addition there is a metal toboggan and two characters, each of which can hold the ski poles. One can stand on the skis too.

This model is in superb condition, beautiful unmarked paintwork and with good suspension (never really a problem on this model). Everything is complete with totally original model, roof rack and characters and it has a good, original box with slightly crinkly cellophane but it has the valuable illustrated header card in place. The toboggan and skis and ski-poles are replacements.

This is the most difficult to find edition in this condition.
