Notes

The most difficult to find of the three Citroen Winter Sports vehicles made by Corgi.

This white and blue Citroen is in all original condition with a perfect and beautifully detailed “Grenoble” transfer on the bonnet. All delicate roof parts are complete and intact. Ski-ing and figure on sled are still present. Note this version has a yellow roof rack, red & poles and skis.
Shaped spun wheels with suspension. The opening tailgate reveals where the skier and tobogganist can be stowed away safely in the back of the car (the rear seats may be folded down by means of the little wheel on the base).
Virtually mint.

The colourful cellophane-fronted header card box is complete and bright with a crisp feel. Note the large header card stands up straight (so often found floppy). Original cellophane window has a pinpoint puncture.
Card inner is complete and bright (separation at the serrated section).
