Notes

From a Corgi distributor’s warehouse, there are some exciting Corgi pieces from this collection that we are thrilled to bring to market.
Stored away for decades, these items all came from a distributor for Corgi in Southern Europe
.

This popular Set was made between 1965-68, and comprises Corgi 245 Buick, red boat trailer, a Dolphin 4 Berth Cabin Cruiser with Captain figure and a water skier.

i) Corgi 245 Buick Riviera in sleek metallic blue with a bright red detailed interior. Suspension on cast detailed wheels. As is often the case with these models, the chrome trim is peeling off. Bright axles, including the ends. Intact tow hook. Original tyres feel supple and look as-new. A most pleasing sheen to the original paint finish.

ii) Trailer is in very near mint condition.

iii) Corgi 104 Dolphin Cabin Cruiser is in fresh, bright and clean condition, with a complete paper label (some age discolouration). Complete with Captain and intact outboard motor and propellor.
This tows the original skier on the original plastic water scene attachment.
Complete and looking as-new!

Colourful card stand is very crisp and fresh with vivid colours. Lovely bright, as-new impression. Hard to find this good.
Both pull-out tabs are present and tear-free. Exceptional. With the original red band which secured the Trailer section in place.
