Notes

We are delighted to offer this scarce original Gift Set for sale.
It comprises:
First issue with a black and white Renault in close to mint condition – and a more difficult find with the red roof label (usually black). Tiny lower corner loss to one small portion on both sides. Complete with spare wheel in the bonnet, driver, camera man and camera.

Note the bonnet transfer has minor wear (edge nick and a little wear besides). ‘Tour De France’ side transfers are complete. Shiny chrome base. Detailed cast wheels and well-shaped original tyres.
Little roof scuff (probably as-made, caused during factory assembly).
Later issues would have a plain orange sleeve insert, but this slightly earlier issue has the attractive tree-lined backdrop, with the little, intact clear blister attached, containing the race leader on his bicycle in his yellow jersey.
Polystyrene plinth is complete and intact (light wear).

The header card window box is clean, crisp and bright with original cellophane in place (couple of pinpoint punctures). Colourful scene on card reverse (no crease). Few ink spots.

Minor handling wear only.
Comes with the Retailer Card and model specific leaflet too.
