A sought-after and scarce Mail Order Gift Set from 1969 only and one of the best surviving examples. An unsold old shop stock item that had been packed away in a loft and forgotten about for decades!
This exciting and colourful set comprises:
1) Corgi 1148 Scammell Car Transporter . Very near mint. Barely a mark. Full complement of yellow plastic chocks.
2) Corgi 258 The Saint’s Volvo in white with a red bonnet label. Cast wheels. Very, very near mint.
3) Corgi 240 Sunbeam Imp in metallic blue. Near mint plus. With intact suspension notably. Marking to a door transfer and a few marks to the rear bumper. Tiny mark or two besides.
4) Corgi 345 MGC GT in orange, with sheet of unapplied racing numbers. Spoked wheels. Such a rare issue and a real find in this virtually mint condition.
5) Corgi 226 Morris Mini Minor in maroon, with cast wheels. Very, very near mint.
6) Corgi 339 Mini Cooper ‘S’ Monte Carlo, with roof rack. Cast wheels. Very near mint.
7) Corgi 249 Wickerwork Mini. Cast wheels. Very near mint with jewelled headlights.
All contents are housed in a polystyrene tray which is formed for this particular issue (so different shaping for central section when compared with the polystyrene tray for the Ford version). Complete with Corgi label with dog logo still in place. Clean, bright and fresh.
The colourful card lid is exceptional – clean, complete and so vividly-coloured. Very fresh indeed with very minor storage grubbiness at the short lid ends not covered by the card over-sleeve and a small fleck of surface removal.
2 x Instruction Leaflets with Information on rear folding seats for the Hillman Imp. Reverse has the printed Membership details.
Nice to see all 3 packing pieces still present:
