Corgi Toys (462) Commer Van Promotional
Corgi Promotional Commer Van Model (no individual Corgi number assigned to this model). Mint/in correct unnumbered plain blue & yellow Corgi Toys box. Scarce RIVETTED issue. One of the best surviving examples - from The Wesley Lodge Collection.
Few were made during the early 1970’s. The dealer who purchased the lot at a much later date asserts that there were 136 in all. They were commissioned by a Mason’s Lodge.
This Commer Van model is based on the standard Corgi 462 model. This example is in virtually mint condition with a distinctive original grey finish, red interior and silver dished wheels, rivetted base (found with either riveted or screwed bases, in our experience).
Such a fresh and gleaming finish – not even a rub on the raised roof detail!
The clean, crisp and bright box (correctly un-numbered) is really crisp, showing little wear.
A truly outstanding item produced in such few numbers.
