Notes

A shame this model never went into production! Finished in vibrant orange, this Corgi Mini Cooper ‘S’ prototype model has a red interior and an additional section fitted so that it can now be used as a Hot Dog Van. Colourful labels throughout are complete, if a little curled at the edges now. With vendor.

Glazing to both side windows (one ‘opened’) and top half of the rear section is glazed too. Late issue recessed spoked wheels. Black tyre detail (one has a small split).
