Corgi 1100 Carrimore Low Loader. Issued 1957-62.
A sought after commercial hard to find close to mint let alone mint. This is a nice early version with Bedford ‘S’ yellow cab, metallic blue trailer and early flat spun wheels. It has a fully working winch and grab with drop down tail.
Condition. Very, Near Mint
The cab displays just a couple of tiny rubs at high edges. The trailer is exceptional with no topside chips a beautiful flat bed and sides with nice wheel arches. The tail has a small loss to Corgi transfer (so common) and paint loss where the bed rests on the leading edge points. Just an occasional mark beside to be safe. Good tyres and wheels and clean base.
Box. Excellent Plus.
Lift off type blue and yellow box with internal packing piece. The base is very strong with no tears or repairs. The top shows a little more wear to some edges and one corner has been re-glued.
A very nice display piece.
