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


Issued between 1967-74, this is an impressively detailed truck from Corgi.

With a bright red and white paint finish, perfect ‘Holmes Wrecker’ transfers on both sides, bare metal booms, intact wing mirrors with reflective stickers still in place, nice straight notably untarnished horns on the cab roof. Intact red coloured plastic hazard ‘light’. Both spare tyres are still in place with gold-coloured spare wheel holders. Complete and bright chevron paper label at the rear of the model. Model looks unused with only the occasional negligible mark.

The blue and yellow window box is complete and bright (earliest version, half-yellow, half-blue card top section). Original cellophane front has a couple of pinprick nicks. Corner edge ruffle and start of a tiny tear to the card and a little light wear besides.

The polystyrene tray is in very close to pristine condition with a bright Corgi dog paper label in place. Both mechanics are included.
