Notes

This is the ‘most fantasmagorical’ Corgi toy, in assumed mint condition! Bought new at the time and never opened. An outstanding example. Gleaming bright, with all four original figures seated inside. *Gold windscreen and gold bonnet bands, headlight surround and more. The deepest gold version we have ever seen. Gold details are more usually found on the version in the shorter box – and not as vivid as in this case.

Chitty close up

Completely unused and still firmly attached to the white plastic moulded inner by means of the original fixings.

Complete blue card cloud scene (often missing).
The longer style cellophane fronted “window” box has day-one bright colours and original cellophane window (tiny pinprick puncture). As-new look and feel. Remains of the mail order label at an end flap and residue of the original tape applied at the time. Light scuff or two on box reverse caused by contact with the mail order sleeve.
