Corgi Toys 150 Vanwall Formula 1 Car
Vanwall Formula 1 Grand Prix Car by Corgi Toys, No. 150. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce late ITALIAN EXPORT issue in mid-green, silver cast wheels, clear screen, silver seat, 2 rivets & horizontal writing on base. A First for QDT! From The Gower Collection. QDT starting bid £350. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
Another remarkable find from this collector. Anecdotally, the Italian market did not want a red Vanwall and so this version was made for export in this bright green colour with cast wheels, a silver seat, racing number 7 and two rivets on the base. Cast details on the base are horizontal.
Complete racing number ‘7’ and ‘Vanwall’ lettering at the side. Clear windscreen. As-new fine tread original tyres.
Horizontal writing on the two-rivetted base with ‘Made in GT Britain’:
Couple of tiny marks to a raised detail and a little mark at the rear.
The later blue and yellow picture box is complete, fresh and bright with a quite a crisp feel. Very minor wear.
