GS38 Monte Carlo Rally Gift Set 1

GS38 Monte Carlo Rally Gift Set 1

300 GBP
With an original box this set sells for £1500 or more. This one has three original cars but a reproduction box and so gives you an opportunity to display this wonderful and iconic set at a fraction of the price.

The 321 Mini has some chips to the red paintwork and just a few minor chips to its white roof. The transfers show a little wear but they are original and not replacements in the wrong typeface! The five jewels are all present. A nice example of this model which was not produced for very long and is the most difficult to find in good condition now.

The 322 Rover has lovely deep metallic maroon paintwork and a nice glossy sheen. It has excellent and intact original transfers and RN136. There are barely any marks to the paintwork,  and the roof is unmarked., one of the best I have seen and actually my own model that I have included in this set until another comes along. The Trans-o-lite headlamps are working and the two fog lamp jewels are present. A really excellent example.

The 323 Citroen DS19 has really nice blue paintwork with, again, no obvious marks to the paintwork, and, importantly has an excellent and intact original aerial and good decals and RN75. The four small jewelled fog lamps are in place. There is what I believe is a small factory splash of red on one rear wing.

All in all, this is a superb set and a rare find with models in such good condition. The best of two sets that I have in stock at the time of writing. Most others I have seen for sale have significantly worse condition cars.
