£95.00

This vintage Corgi 256 VW Beetle (East African Safari) diecast model dates from the 1960’s. The model has been professionally restored to a very high standard.

The paintwork has been stripped back to bare metal and then re-sprayed with several coats of high-quality automotive paint. Only parts that were badly worn have been replaced, and the most of the model is original. New replica transfers and stickers have been applied and the model is presented in a high-quality reproduction box and inner display plinth.

Condition:

  • VW Beetle: Near Mint (Grade 9.5) There are a couple of very small rubs on the bumper and some very slight discolouration to the original mudflaps. The bonnet and boot do not stay in the ‘open’ position, but this is very common on this model.
  • Rhino figure (replica): As new (Grade: 10.0)
  • Inner display plinth (reproduction): As new (Grade: 10.0)
  • Box(reproduction): As new (Grade: 10.0)
