These are photos of the actual model you are buying. Remember that these toys are around 50 years old! All models advertised are original, not restored or repainted unless I have stated otherwise.
One of those cars that looks the same whether it is going backwards or forwards. Just to confuse us this also has an engine in the back but Corgi helpfully placed a Venetian blind in the rear window. At leat I hope it’s the rear window.
This is a gold edition from the Golden Guinea Gift set 20. I have always thought that should have been 21 but never mind. Old collectors will understand.
I am going to make a GS20 but am waiting for a decent Bentley. Until then, the Ford Consul Classic and this are available individually. It is an odd set indeed and Corgi even had to make new interiors for the Ford and Chevrolet, presumably because the lemon didn’t show up well? I have no idea why these three were chosen. The Bentley has a sort of ‘gold’ quality about it but, apart from each having something that opens, what they have in common to deserve this treatment escapes me. Perhaps they had vast overstocks of the Chevrolet and Ford which never struck me as remarkable models as they were.
This is pretty good. The paint has lost its smoothness - an age thing more than any damage - and there are some chips. The windows are excellent, and the suspension sound. Overall, bearing in mind that any mark looks bad on this surface, this is a very decent display item indeed.
