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


An impressively detailed truck from Corgi.
With a bright red and white paint finish and virtually complete-complete ‘Holmes Wrecker’ transfers on both sides. Intact wing mirrors with both reflective stickers still in place. Intact and straight shiny bare metal double horns on the roof. Some bare metal parts too. Complete red hazard ‘light’. Both spare tyres are still in place. Chevron paper label at the rear of the model is complete. This gold boom (rather dulled, or as-made) version displays very well!

This model has rarely been out of its box and has no play chips/marks.

Polystyrene inner is complete, bright and fresh with a vibrantly-coloured original Corgi Cog label.


The blue and yellow card and cellophane-fronted box has bright and crisp card! Smooth original cellophane window has a couple of tiny nicks.
Little age/handling wear only.

This example comes complete with the original Instruction leaflet and both mechanics.


Original Retailer Card (so often discarded) is still present too.
Issued between 1967-74.
