3) 226 Morris MIni Minor in light powder blue with red interior, spun wheels. Very near mint. Lovely, crisp, fresh box!

Note that these models are obviously the originals from this set (i.e. not a later made-up set). All the items have shaped spun wheels, superb fresh boxes with no individual prices understandably.
The colourfully illustrated lift-off lid box is bright and complete with some rubbing/light handling wear. Note that one corner has a repaired split and heavier wear. Base has storage wear including grubbiness on the underside. Penned writing on the underside of the box base.
