The price for a set in an original box is quite extraordinary, regularly achieving around £1500 as and when they appear, even with less than mint models inside! So here is a very reasonable, and yet still very attractive, alternative using a reproduction box and added the three models.
The Mini is hard to find these days but this one still has its correct original transfers. Many have a much too white transfer for the racing number and that is in quite the wrong font too and stands out a mile. This is worn and the decals are too and obviously this has been played with but it is all original.
The Rover has replacement RN decals and has a small crack in the rear window where the Trans-o-lite headlights join. The metallic crimson paint is worn with playwear and the white roof shows a few chips. It is otherwise all totally original, however, with no retouches or a repainted roof like many have.
The Citroen is almost impossible to track down now with an original and undamaged aerial unless you are prepared to pay very high sums indeed. This one is the recently issued Corgi Model Club edition and immaculate, an exact copy of the original 323 model.
If you have a space where this set should be displayed then this is a very good opportunity to get one that does have original Corgis, even if one is a Corgi Model Club re-issue, at a very reasonable price.
I shall include the Certificate and box for the Citroen so that you can keep or sell this separately should you find a 1965 issue model at some point.
The box is not particularly great but it does display the models well and is clean and, from a distance, just like the real thing.
