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.
This is proving very difficult to find! I don’t often buy restored versions but, after well over a year of looking and not even seeing one, I thought I would get this one so we can see what it looks like.
Actually the other Andrew from Little Wheels had one that I would have bought but he sold everything on the site some years ago. That is the only real one I’ve ever seen and had I not noticed it I probably would not have thought it existed, the army version coming out as 414 could have been an acceptable ‘Type 2’ after all.
So while I carry on hoping to find an original this very impressive and immaculate restoration gets its place here. Excellent work by whoever did it with, I am advised, an original window unit so only the pant and stickers are new.
Because this could have originated as a 414, though, I cannot expect too much for it as anyone could, in theory, get one of those and do the cream repaint. Stickers are cheap. I do like the effort made to use a very convincing rivet in the base, though, which is where most restorations fall flat.
It’s difficult to price but this is such a good job and still pretty scarce that I won’t let it go very cheaply.
