Notes

An early 156 issue in fine all original condition with a shining rich cream finish, CREAM ridged wheels, and version without Rover cast in to the underside of the roof. Bright base and smooth-running original tyres.

Lightly-tarnished area on the base.

A very close to mint paint finish. Few little casting casting dots on the roof.
The scarce transition box which shows both the early 140B numbering and 156 was issued during 1954. Notably, this example has the correct cream colour spot, too. Light handling wear/grubbiness.
