Corgi Toys 808 Basil Brush
Basil Brush & His Car by Corgi Toys, No. 808. Near mint plus/boxed. With Sound Box & Laugh Tape. Inspired by the early 1970's T.V. series. From The Kingshill Collection.
A popular Corgi model made between 1971-1973 and part of the ‘Corgi Comics’ range of models. The inimitable Basil Brush character is seated inside his bright red and yellow car.
Red plastic wheels and as-new original ‘Corgi Toys’ embossed tyres.
Few little marks to the car.
This model comes with the ‘Sound Box’ containing an intact laugh tape. An ambitious idea from Corgi: the pieces of tape inside are meant to sound like Basil’s laughter when the instructions are followed. Usually two laugh tapes are included – just one with this example. Little crumple.
The colourfully illustrated outer box is complete, bright and has a crisp feel. The original cellophane has a small split. Minor wear to the card.
Complete pictorial stand is clean, bright and complete. Very light wear.
