Corgi Toys Gift Set 1B Transporter Gift Set
Transporter Gift Set with Transporter & 2 Dummy Boxes. Part-set with packing, Instruction Leaflet & both 'Dummy' Boxes. Wear to outer box lid. From The Ground Crew Collection. Starting bid £125. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
Issued between 1959-62, this scarce (part) set comprises:
1) 1101 Bedford ‘S’ Carrimore Car Transporter, red cab, with mid-blue & very pale blue back, with shaped spun wheels, in very near mint condition. Exposed edge mark toward the rear and the occasional little mark/contact mark besides. Complete lettering at the sides. Complete Corgi Dog logo at the rear. Note the original label still attached at the rear (rare to find with this label). Note the ramp does not fix into place in the up position.
The colourfully illustrated lift-off lid box has not fared so well. Area of surface loss, seam splits nearby and corner scuffing. Two small punctures have pressed back into place.
Orange box base has fared much better with light shelf grubbiness on the underside only.
Includes the original white card insert which houses the individual items (puncture caused by the transporter) and also includes 2 bright, clean and fresh ‘Dummy Boxes’ with the Corgi Dog decoration.
Original Leaflet too.
