Corgi Toys 474 Musical Walls' Ice Cream Van
Musical Wall's Ice Cream Van by Corgi Toys, No. 474. Very near mint/boxed ('foggy' windows to cab). With fully working chimes. Card stand and wrap-around card. Unapplied stickers on backing sheet. Instruction Leaflet. From The Hastings Collection. Starting bid £300. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
One of the most eagerly sought-after Corgi models and such a nostalgic item.
The Ford Thames Van has a shining blue and cream finish with striped awning and decorative trimmings, sliding windows and when you turn the handle the chimes play. Bright plated fittings and complete ’Wall’s’ transfers on both sides. Windows are rather ‘foggy’ now( common fault – over time dust gets trapped and adhered to the interior surface of the windows). Tiny wear besides.
Nice to see that this example comes with the complete and bright colourful card stand as well as the wrap-around card packing piece*. Full set of unapplied labels on a backing sheet. Instruction Leaflet/Corgi Club Membership Form is included too.
The decorative card box is complete and quite bright with quite a crisp feel. Light wear only.
