Notes

Purchased by a Corgi specialist, this is one of a cache of mid 1960’s models which included colour trial models, donated to Barnardo’s Charity upon the death of a relative. The Barnardo’s charity shop is located just a few minutes from the old Corgi headquarters….

Issued between 1966-69, this colour trial model has an original mid-blue finish, moulded bright red interior on the bonnet. This blue issue was never issued with this bright red colour interior.
Note the difference between the colour finish of this colour trial model and the production model in bright mid blue and white bonnet stripes. For information only:
