Complete with spare wheel stowed underneath.
Very little marking to the paint finish, and good to see that the majority of the Shackleton transfer behind the cab is very close to complete.

Especially difficult to find with its distinctive sturdy colourful card box. Almost always found with substantial wear, this example is sound and compete if showing some age and storage wear. No repairs.
Original tools, booklet and key included in the small original card tray:
