Corgi 258 The "Saint's" Car Volvo P.1800. Very near mint/boxed. First issue with a black Saint logo figure on a cream background. From The Oslo Collection, a single owner from new collection.
First issue model introduced in 1965 in white, with a bright red interior and a black “Saint” matchstick figure transfer on the bonnet. The car is in very close to mint condition. Displays superbly with a crisp white paint finish, and a complete “Saint” matchstick figure on the bonnet ( couple of little as-made factory ‘flaws’ to the cream background of the transfer). Jewelled headlights, perfect suspension on shaped spun wheels, driver. As-new original tyres. All original throughout.
Factory unfinished front bumper silvering on one side. Couple of tiny marks to the paint finish.
The blue and yellow picture box is clean, crisp and complete. Very small tear and lightest wear. Silky as-new feel to the card.
