This item is no longer for sale, price for reference only.


An exceptional collection of prototypes were purchased by ?The New European? Collector, largely originating from two well-documented sources i.e. the auction of the property of Marcel Van Cleemput at Sotheby?s Auction House in 1999 and the Losch Auction House in Germany during 2000.

A range of simply-styled models were devised in 1959 to sell through Woolworths. Each model measured 5 inches and comprised a body shell and two axles with four wheels. This bright red Triumph TR2 has free-running one-piece wheels; (assumed) the underside pictured in ‘The Great Book of Corgi’ on page 76.



Few little marks only.
