My price includes postage and packing within the UK, items usually being despatched within 48 hours of receipt of funds.

One of the rarest Corgi Toys. I didn’t expect to be listing one of my own of these but I just came across this slightly battered example one day.
This was, I had thought, just a version that Corgi were considering releasing as the silver plate was not exactly a colour you’d see every day and so a few were prepared. It seems that they were released, however, but in tiny numbers. I cannot understand why this was not a mainstream release and so few were made but that’s the way it is and, apart from immaculate, hardly ever out of the box, examples that appear from time to time at extraordinary prices, this is not something you’ll be likely to see again in a hurry.
The paintwork is not that bad, the most loss being on the wings and roof edge. The suspension, wheels and tyres are excellent and the base is clean. The windows are all intact with no cracks but the front screen has quite a few scratches which, when viewed from some angles look worse than they really are.
The stripe and Racing Number 8 are very good, just some chips on the roof element. The silver is very good front and back with nice number plate areas.
I am afraid that I disagree with the lower prices quoted on some sites (but who don’t have any). With none actually available to compare I am pricing this at what I feel I would pay and think collectors will to fill that gap. If I see any cheaper, believe me, I’ll buy them!
