One of the early Whizzwheel models from 1970 based on a previous cast. You may recognise this as the East African Safari #276 minus rhino or the green and white #292 European Police car. Each of the predecessors had steering but that’s gone now. Inside you can still see the place in the mould where the mechanism would have descended through from the roof though!

This is the start of a terrible decline. Already the model has bad lines on the wings and, never mind the wheels, it has lost opening rear and front panels and even the lovely little mud flaps. Gone too are the jewelled headlamps which is surprising as they are still featured on several other later models.

This lasted from 1970 to 1976 while some other versions came and went along the way. I have no idea why this lasted so long and the others didn’t.

This example is very smart and clean and in excellent condition throughout, rather better in the metal than on screen where shadows on white paint look like blemishes which it doesn’t actually have.

It’s quite common, though, so inexpensive.
