Notes

A fine and original example of this* export issue* made between 1953-54 (later renumbered 981). This Horsebox is cast in aluminium and has a very lustrous deep maroon paint finish with matching wheels, which is close to perfect. Complete lettering at both sides, virtually complete above the cab. Correct that this model does not have horses – only the Newmarket issue (D979) had horses.
Superb display piece.
