My price includes postage and packing within the UK, items usually being despatched within 48 hours of receipt of funds. I am happy to send items abroad but buyers from overseas should contact me for shipping costs and make an additional payment. Buyers are liable for import taxes in their own country where appropriate.
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.
Most of the Corgi range had some appeal for me in one way or another but I have struggled to find anything about the early racing cars. They just looked so basic and lacking in much detail. Maybe there just wasn’t much detail. Anyway, here it is.
This is the Lotus in blue with a driver which was added in 1961. It is also slightly different from the 1957 151, with a slightly changed windscreen.
This is not the prettiest of cars and this example also has some paint loss on the wings, although not as bad as many you’ll see.
I think the driver and steering wheel may have been replaced at some time, not that many would notice.
This is the same one as I am selling in Gift Set 16 with the Ecurie Ecosse Transporter which is where it originated.
