A sought-after, scarce Belgian export issue made between 1965-66 only. Easily distinguishable with its ingenious “glowing” Trans-O-Lite lighting, this was the first Corgi ‘special’ export model.
In very close to mint condition with spring suspension on shaped spun wheels, and the chef rotates when the knob on the roof is turned. Complete “Patates Frites” label and just a couple of tiny nicks to the “Snack Bar” label.
The pictorial box is bright, fresh, crisp and complete. Only the most minor wear.
