Corgi Toys 339 Austin Monte Carlo Mini Cooper 'S'
Austin Monte Carlo Mini Cooper 'S' by Corgi Toys, No.339. Very near mint/boxed. Cast wheels issue in plain card box. Superb example! From The Heart of England Collection. Starting bid £150. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
A desirable Corgi Monte Carlo Mini model (Austin) in bright red and white finish with complete racing numbers 177 on both doors, chrome roof rack (tiniest rub or two) and two spare wheels. Suspension on all four cast wheels. Six jewelled headlights/spotlights (note that Austin Mini models have smaller headlights – compared to the Morris issues, other casting differences too). Monte Carlo labels are complete at front and rear. Notably, both front number and rear number plates are complete. Tiny factory paint miss on a side window post (really tiny!). Minute dot of additional, stray transfer on the bonnet. Being extra fussy here.
Nice to see that the white roof does not have nibbles/chips at edges, so presents very well.
Bright sump guard.
The scarce plain non-picture card box has deep colours on crisp, clean card. Silky feel shows that this box has rarely been handled. Exceptional.
