Corgi 318 Lotus Elan S2 ‘Tiger in the tank’ Issued  1965-67.

Rare in white.

Superb example from the USA ‘Carolina’ collection.

Description.
This is the hard to find all white example with a black interior, shaped spun wheels, a white racing driver and a blue helmet. Across the boot is the transfer ‘I’ve got a tiger in my tank’. The box is the blue and yellow picture box and has a full un-applied strip of racing number 5 stickers. Also includes a packing ring and club membership leaflet.

Condition. Very, near mint.
The model itself has two chips one on each side on the door below the curve of the windscreen. The only other mark is tiny but where the bonnet opens at its widest point. The transfer is a little age stained.
Everything else very nice indeed.

Box. Mint.
Has a USA  shop keepers label and price one end. Also has within the packing ring and full racing number strip with membership leaflet.

Summary.
A very nice example of this sought after scarcity.
