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.
Sometime before May 1970 someone at Corgi thinks ‘Ah, we must put Whizzwheels on The Saint’s Volvo. Big mistake. That car was already a classic in the range and it didn’t need changing. It had been around for years already. If anything, they could bring out a new version, perhaps, as this was one of the originals that did nothing, its only features being sparkly lights an spring suspension which by that decade, had worn a bit thin.
I mean - they changed the ruddy interior to a yucky shade or brown so why not do something more! Crazy. Anyway, it wasn’t to last long in this form, dying off in 1972 just a year or so later, and so making this quite a rare model to find.
This is a totally original and clean model with just one or two chips here and there but it has excellent screens, the decal is intact (most have been replaced with incorrect shiny bright ones!) And, most unusually for this model, the suspension is sound! If you see cheap ones that is usually a problem.
This is a good example of rare model, not many being produced.
[Now sold. The Saint may now be seen around Llwyngwril in Wales]
