More minis

A very clean and almost mint example of the later #334 BMC Mini 'Manifique' is now in stock. To have everything opening (and even the roof slides) is quite a credit to Corgi's manufacturing skills. The chrome works really well and this blue is definitely the best colour. There was also a green version - see further down. I am surprised that they didn't have a red or the purple of the other model out at the time which suited the car. The boxes for these later editions were the flimsy card and cellophane variety and few survived so I don't have one for this although I expect reproductions are possible and may be worth getting for something i a s good a condition as this one.

Also in recently was this Austin Countryman.

As I said last time, that's enough minis, Ed.
