Notes

A little piece of Spot-on history.
The owner tells us:
‘I believe these were colour samples or trials as 2 have original labels from 1964 and 1966.
Bodies have never been assembled, rivets have never been spun. All have a few chips but are probably unique.
Bought them many years ago from a collector in Northern Ireland.’

We are delighted to bring these Spot-on trial pieces to the market-place.

1) Spot-on 274 Morris 1100 body shell, sky blue colour trial. This sample with the holes for a roof rack with canoe was also found in Spot-on Gift Set 702. This sample has the original tag dated 1964. Hand-written print:
