Corgi 214M Ford Thunderbird Mechanical Rare. Issued 1959-60 Only.

Description.
A superb and distintive Corgi missing in so many established collections. Only issued for a very short period this pink model with black roof has early flat silver wheels and a working 'friction' motor..

Condition. Almost Mint.
Without doubt the best example I have ever seen in 40 years of collecting and trading. The paintwork is without a blemish.To be over critical there is a tiny factory casting mark on the top of the left front wing . That is it. The glass has no scratching the wheels the same. Wonderful piece.

Box. Excellent Plus.
This is a nice complete original box with no repairs. It holds good shape and the end flaps still plenty of spring.There is little evidence of wear. Main fault is a stain mark on the red model picture side.

Summary.
How often do you see one of these and this good. Museum quality. Shame about the box stain.
