Notes

A shining bright example of this very popular Corgi model. This VW looks very smart indeed with a vivid scarlet finish, bright chrome, jewelled lights. Shaped spun wheels and fine original tyres.
Complete with the detailed Safari label on the bonnet, a complete “NAIROBI” label in the rear window, and intact racing number 18 on both doors.

The car has “True Scale Steering” when the wheel on the roof is turned. Opening bonnet and boot reveals a detailed engine and ‘luggage’.
Occasional tiny mark to the paint finish.
It comes with the original rhino which slots into the inner card stand for display.
The colourful card plinth is very bright, with a detailed backdrop. Crisp and fresh with barely any wear.

C256s6303

C256s6305

None of the usual wear and tear to the wheel slots, either. Card ring which fitted over the roof section is present although it has a tear.
The illustrated card box is complete, bright and clean.

Small tear at an end flap side edge. Small internal end flap tear. Creasing on a non-picture side. Very small part-puncture.
