Notes

An impressively detailed truck from Corgi.
With a bright red and white paint finish and complete ‘Holmes Wrecker’ transfers on both sides. One intact wing mirror with reflective sticker in place (the other is detached, found loose in the box). Intact and straight shiny gold double horns on the roof. Complete red hazard ‘light’. Both spare tyres are still in place. Chevron paper label at the rear of the model has a little age transparency now. This gold boom version feels as if it has been taken out of the box for the first time for these pictures.
