£180.00 (Sold out)

Victory Industries 1/18th scale Vauxhall Velox.  Excellent Plus-Near Mint.

History.
The Vauxhall was the second road car model made following the Morris Minor 1000 around 1950-51. Made, from their small factory in Guildford, in the south of England. These models were produced in plastic using the latest commercially produced injection moulding machines. Battery operated they were produced with attractive metal trim such as bumpers, door handles radiator grill, hub caps and finishing touches.

Description.
Dark blue body with beige tinplate interior and silver wheels. It has steerable front wheels, includes the battery cover to underside and retains all metal fittings and number plates ‘VAU 64’.

Condition.  Excellent Plus-Near Mint.
One of the best I have seen. All parts still intact. It also includes instruction leaflet, Guarantee, Warning notice and a single page current catalogue listing though the latter has some graffiti. The hub caps show some rusting, there is minimal defacing on the number plates, but that’s about it.

Box.  Excellent Plus-Near Mint.
Complete with no tears or damage it retains its inner packing surround and possibly the original tissue wrapping. Retains strong colour and no graffiti.

Summary.
An excellent opportunity for a very nice example of these hard to find models.
