Corgi 227 Morris Mini-Cooper Competition Model. Very near mint/boxed. Blue with white bonnet and roof. Slim' racing number 3. From The Reigate Collection.
A pleasing Corgi rally model in bright mid-blue finish with a white roof and bonnet, complete crossed flags on the bonnet.
Shaped spun wheels have suspension, complete racing number 3 on both doors (more unusual ‘slim’ racing numbers – most often bold i.e. thicker print), jewelled headlights. Tiny remains of residue at number plate area where registration labels were applied and then removed at some time. Couple of tiny marks to the paint finish.
The box is complete and the colours are bright. Crisp with plenty of end flap spring.
In all original condition, this is a delightful Mini issued between 1962-65.
