Corgi 428 Karrier Mister Softee Ice Cream Van. Issued 1963-66.
Just out of storage from a lifelong collection in the West Country.
A favourite Corgi van of mine, in upper cream and the lower section in blue. It has silver shaped spun wheels. Either side the windows slide open freely and the salesman can pivot around by spinning the cog on the base plate. There are 4 transfers , two on each side. It has all round independent suspenion.
This is a perfect example with no fault that I can see. The transfers are complete and the window glass no scratches. If I had to find fault the pink cone that sits on the front roof has a cream not pink tip. A little blue showing on the front bumer.
Box. Very, Near Mint.
Good shape and showing minimal wear. The flaps are a little loose common with this box. Retains nice bright colour. Corgi Membership leaflet inside.
It would be hard pressed to find much better than this. A beauty for the cabinet.
