Hell I paid a lot of money for this. For me it is one of the iconic Corgi models, up there with the James Bond Aston and the Batmobile. The prices they go for seem to back up my feelings, they are really one of the most expensive models in any condition. This one is OK actually, a bit playworn, but complete and undamaged.

The modelling and the engineering are all well up to standard on this Corgi, the sliding windows and the rotating ice cream vendor inside. The whole thing though evokes a 60's childhood and the new soft ice cream sold from vans which came around town playing their chimes. It is always cream over pale blue and there are no listed variations. You will see the same casting used as an Army field kitchen
