Complete with spare wheel stowed underneath.
Very little chipping although there are some retouches to the cab and a few small retouches on the bed.
Especially difficult to find with its distinctive sturdy colourful card box. A difficult version to find in powder blue with informative end label. A ‘Temporary Pack’. Some wear as you might expect (rubbing and edge scuffs). Sound with no repairs. A little staining at staples.
Original tools and leaflet too including the buff card box. A now empty Shackle Pins packet is included too.
