Corgi 322 Rover 2000 International Rally Finish. Issued 1967 Only.
Only 66,000 models were sold. That sounds huge nowadays when a collectors model is issued with 500 copies. But remembering these models were not bought as collectors models but toys, that was not many for the international market of model toys sales that had been built. Now this model is very collectable and sought after.
Finished in white with a gloss black bonnet it had a red interior and cast spoked wheels. With Trans-O-Lite headlights as well as a pair of jewelled lights and applied number plates on the bonnet and rear plate it was a very attractive model. Rally racing number transfers are on each door with racing number ‘21’ to give it a real sporty appearance.
The box was a standard Rover Monte Carlo box but with the addition of a white special sticker with the description in red reading ‘Rover 2000 International Rally Finish’.
Condition. About Mint.
A superb example with lovely paintwork and complete transfers. There are no faults to record.
Box. Near Mint.
The box holds good shape with just a small crease one corner. The label is complete but discoloured. There are a couple of marks on the box.
A wonderful model in very nice overall condition. Show cabinet quality.
