This is the model that really set the standards in 1961, with so many new features that had not been seen before. This was the first with jewelled headlamps, jewelled rear lights too, the first with chrome-plated fittings, the first with the superbly engineered steering system and even the first with a spare wheel!

There are essentially two colours available: a black and grey and a very pale green or cream and olive green. This is the olive green and pale green colour. A gold edition was made for Gift Set 20.
This is in nice condition, the all-important emblem is intact and fully chromed, the windows are clean and clear and the wheels shiny. There is, of course, a good spare in the boot too.  There are a few marks to the paintwork but not at all obvious on display, just showing in some photos.
There is wear to the chrome over-riders but the tyres are correct originals, except in the boot which is an original wheel but with replacement tyre. One red jewel is missing from the rear.
One of the images demonstrates the clear difference between the pale green and cream paint finish.
