Corgi Toys 203 Vauxhall Velox
Vauxhall Velox Saloon by Corgi Toys, No. 203. Very near mint/boxed, with promotional booklet. Scarce all-yellow version with silver flutes on bonnet. From The Berlin Collection.
Issued between 1956-61, this Velox in all-yellow is a more difficult find (usual version has a red roof). Flat spun wheels and a bright tinplate baseplate An appealing, original sheen to the paint finish. The eye-catching silver details on the bonnet, radiator and bumpers are all original and gleaming bright.
Tiny raised casting dot on the roof and a small blemish on the windscreen ( we expect due to the application and then removal of a period Corgi accessory sticker, which were available at the time).
The blue picture box is colourful and crisp.. Shopkeeper’s price on an end flap and a period shop price label on another. Minor wear.
