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 25 which had the orange-yellow 159 Maserati on the trailer. This GS6 was around from 1967 to 1969 and then the yellow 159 Maserati replaced it.
I acquired just the VW Truck and trailer and, with its early spun wheels, I suspect this is more likely to be from a Gift Set 6 than 25. However, the trailer has the later spoked wheels and patterned runners which might be 25. It could also have come from GS37.
The Maserati is in fine condition with no obvious marks and clean decals on the side. The truck is very good with really no faults. It has all the tools and a working winch and hook. The screens are good and suspension sound. The tyre on the winch is cracked but I can’t see how to replace it but it is stable and looks fine.
