A little piece of Spot-on history.
The owner tells us:
‘I believe these were colour samples or trials as 2 have original labels from 1964 and 1966.
Bodies have never been assembled, rivets have never been spun. All have a few chips but are probably unique.
Bought them many years ago from a collector in Northern Ireland.’
We are delighted to bring these Spot-on trial pieces to the market-place.
