These are photos of the actual model available. Remember that these toys are around 50 years old! All models advertised are original, not restored or repainted unless I have stated otherwise.
For a short period, 1972 to 1973, Corgi brought out the old #226 cast, fiddled with it a bit and painted it orange or blue, maybe with a black roof too for good measure.
And they put Whizzwheels on it. Mini collectors will often miss this one because it was not around for long and I really don’t remember seeing it at all in those days. The ‘normal’ mini was still around in that lovely purple shade and I wouldn’t mind betting that many shops had a good stock of them and didn’t exactly push sales of this version.
These are not cheap and quite sought after. My example is pretty weathered and definitely ‘play worn’ as sellers often like to describe their stock, presumably covering all evils.
So, yes, the paint is a bit tatty and the rear suspension is rock hard but the windows are clean and clear with a rear view mirror too. [Now sold but another similar example is now available.]
