Notes

A shame this model never went into production! Finished in vibrant orange, this Corgi Mini Cooper ‘S’ prototype model has a red interior and an additional section fitted so that it can now be used as a Hot Dog Van. Colourful labels throughout are complete, if a little curled at the edges now. With vendor.
