Crescent Toys 1287 Connaught Grand Prix Racing Car
Connaught 2 Litre Grand Prix Racing Car by Crescent Toys, 1287. Near mint plus/boxed. Scarce issue from this respected British model maker. From The Simon Regis Collection.
Issued between 1956-60 and one of the much sought-after range of Sports and Racing cars, this example is in close to mint condition with a pleasing lustre to the all original finish.
Lovely sheen to the deep green finish. Couple of little transfer nicks. A little crazing/fatigue in a couple of places. Black spoked wheels and fine as-new original tyres. Cream base.
The highly-evocative pictorial box has bright colours on clean, crisp card. Tiny tear and a little storage crumple.
