Complete with spare wheel stowed. Occasional chip to the paint, a little minor ‘blistering’ on one side and note that one tyre needs to be replaced (spare stowed). Clockwork function is faulty and needs attention.
Especially difficult to find with its distinctive sturdy colourful card box. Correct colour spot.

Some of the usual wear as you might expect and note that there are a couple of notable tears to the box base underside.
