Corgi 277 Monkees ‘Monkeemobile’ Issued 1968-72.
Just out of storage from a lifelong collection in the West Country.
A special adaption motor released and based on the popular pop group at the time The Monkees who were also given there own TV show. I can still here ringing in my ears ‘Here come the Monkees’. This example barely handled and in mint condition is in gleaming red finish with cut bonnet section and raised custom chromed engine. The roof is textured in white and relies on sunny days with no side or rear glazing. Cast spoked wheels and bright chrome work. It also has fully independent working suspension.
There is nothing else to say except, it is shop stock and without even a manufacturing flaw. Perfect yellow transfers on each side. All four of the band are inside but this was a time before compulsory safety belts!
Box. Very Near Mint.
The window box is almost perfect. Bright card both in the outer box and inner stand with minor marks where the tyres sit. There is a small puncture in the cellophane with a piece of tape applied. It retains great shape and showing no normal wear.
A superb example just a tiny hole in the window box only. Showroom presence.
