Notes

Another superb find from this collector!
Issued between 1963-66, this is a an old shop stock cache of unsold Hillman Imp models, each in never-opened export style boxes. Each model has a metallic silvery-green finish, vivid red interior, and bright spun wheels.
Al are in assumed mint condition save for one which has a little factory flaw on the roof. Note another is factory unfinished (quite remarkable to see):

Each item comes with luggage and each is still firmly affixed to the card inner. The card and cellophane export-style boxes are hard to find this good. They are so vulnerable to tearing , particularly the cellophane. Just two of these boxes have a split to the cellophane. Card is clean, vibrant and intact throughout. Traces of the old tape which kept the boxes sealed.
