Corgi 1110 Mobilgas Petrol Tanker. Very near mint/boxed. Shaped spun wheel issue. Late end-flap style box with card packing sleeve. Scarce item from The Eric Morris Collection.
This sought-after Corgi commercial Bedford ‘S’ Tanker is in glossy, fresh condition with perfect transfers on both sides. Perfect detailed transfer at the rear too. Slightly later issue with shaped spun rather than flat spun wheels. This is the version without suspension. A little wheel arch graze caused by the swivelling tank section. Stray flick of factory silver on a rear bumper. Vivid day-one bright colours; not a hint of sunfading on this model:
Bright baseplate, too. Well-shaped tyres.
Couple of little retouches visible upon closest scrutiny.
The later end flap style box is complete and bright. Light grubbiness and wear and an internal end flap seam tear. Tiny tear besides.
Card packing sleeve included.
