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.
If you are looking for the white VW Breakdown Truck #490 then this is one of three places you’ll find it. The boxed version was a beige affair and didn’t have the Corgi decals on the doors.
These sets can cause some confusion too as there was a Gift Set 6 which had the nice blue 156 Maserati on the trailer. That was around from 1967 to 1969 and then the yellow 159 Maserati replaced it.
I acquired just the VW Truck and trailer and actually, with its early spun wheels and the plain trailer wheels, I suspect this is more likely to be from a Gift Set 6 than 25 but I haven’t got a 156 to put on the trailer at the moment. I do have a 159 so that’s why I’ve labelled it GS25.
When I get a 156 I will re-label this as GS6 which is probably more accurate. Of course, it could be from the Lotus Racing Team Set GS37! I don’t have a spare chassis, yellow Elan or the characters for that one though.
A nice set. The truck needs a hook which I will obtain. Otherwise it is all complete and as it should be. The Maserati is very clean and unmarked.
