Corgi Toys 256 VW 1200 in East African Safari Trim with Rhino
Volkswagen 1200 in East African Safari Trim with Rhino by Corgi Toys, No. 256. Mint/boxed. Left-hand drive. With all packing, leaflet & circular card ring. An exceptional example from The Marc Mulvale Collection.
A very popular Corgi model – this example is in mint condition, with a fine and gleaming scarlet paint finish. The left-hand drive version has a notably complete detailed bonnet label, complete door numbers and “Nairobi” label. Chrome bumpers, wheels, baseplate, and sparkling jewelled headlights.
Outstanding. We have not seen better.
It comes complete with rhino, as well as the white card wrap-around packing piece and the yellow card packing piece that fits over the wheel on the roof.
The colourful card plinth on which car and rhino sit is a most attractive display piece. Crisp, as-new feel to the vibrant, fresh card. Some push-out tabs for the wheels are still remarkably in place. Shop-fresh condition.
Vividly-coloured backdrop for this model.
Box reverse has lots of information about the “Beetle”.
The outer box is bright, fresh and complete, with eye-catching graphics. Crisp, clean and barely handled. Price pencilled on a lid end. Very light wear.
Model specific Leaflet and card packing included.
