Corgi Toys 1131 Carrimore Detachable Axle Machinery Carrier
Carrimore Detachable Axle Machinery Carrier by Corgi Toys, No. 1131. Scarce early issue with LIGHT BLUE CAB & yellow detachable rear axle unit. Very near mint/boxed (wear). From The Coastline Collection.
An early issue example made between 1963-66. Note the light blue cab (distinctly different from the standard deeper blue issue).
Just a few tiny marks at the detachable rear axle (usual later version has a black detachable rear axle). Looks completely unused. Nice to see that this example comes complete with both of the delicate wing mirrors intact and complete with the little ‘mirrors’ still present too. Suspension is fine on all four shiny shaped spun wheels. Fine original tyres.
The inner card stand is brightly-coloured, with none of the usual wear at wheel slots (in fact all the little push-out tabs are in place). Minor wear includes a little edge scuff.
The card picture box is complete and the colours are strong. Note the tape residue on one end. Storage puncture and one large end flap has been re-attached, another with a repair.
Handling wear besides.
