Corgi Toys 1143 American La France Aerial Rescue Truck
American La France Aerial Rescue Truck by Corgi Toys, No. 1143. Scarce with RED WHEELS. Very near mint/boxed (early window box) with Retailer Card. From The Hastings Collection.
A detailed and impressive fire engine from Corgi’s Major Pack range. This articulated fire truck is complete with all six firemen and all sections of the telescopic ladder, jewelled headlights, aerial and perfect “American La France” lettering and crest transfers. Certainly, this model has never been played with. A few little marks that you have to search for. Complete with all delicate parts intact including the wing mirrors! Detailed cast wheels in red. Rotating turntable and detachable tractor unit. Silver base.
Very close to mint condition.
A little understandable marking where the two components attach and a little chrome loss to the delicate aerial.
The early light blue and yellow large cellophane-fronted window box has intact original cellophane. Card is complete showing a little wear with a few very minor end flap handling tears and a small surface scuff. Wonderfully vibrant detailed scene on the box reverse.
Moulded polystyrene inner sleeve has a tape repair to one end.
Great to see that that this example comes with the rare original header card/retailer card.
Corgi Club Membership Form is included.
