900 Bentley 3 litre 1927 Le Mans with original first issue box

60 GBP
When first issued this was numbered 900 but soon that became 9001. These early editions were sold in a different type of box as you'll see from the photos. It was a thinner card to the later tray + lid affair (which was far more suitable!) and good examples are hard to find now. There was also a device which held the model on its display base. Indeed, on this example, I have not yet been able to release it! I am sure it will slide off but i am anxious not to cause any damage so I'll leave it for now.

The model itself is in fabulous condition. Totally original, the only fault is a small crack in the windscreen. It has an original hood and driver too, a super example.
