Virtually flawless sleek silver finish on this beautiful example with lithographed interior. Model measures 29cms. approx. Note the bumpers are slightly dulled due to prolonged contact with the polystyrene inner.

The colourfully illustrated card lift-of lid box is a delight! The unmistakable Sean Connery is behind the wheel of the car. Minor wear only. Polystyrene packing piece is included (staining in one area due to prolonged contact with the model). Box is dated 1965.

Instructions included.
