A piece of genuine precision engineering excellence from Corgi - well designed and well made. It sold well over a million pieces over 12 years, which probably accounts for the fact that prices are modest. It is a must have though, one of the peaks of engineering achievement for the brand. The pantograph mechanism for raising and lowering the cherry picker is amazing, clever, precise and durable.

Production began in 1964, being released in September of that year. It was finally deleted in 1976. In all that time there are no listed variations, however you will find it in a range of different boxes, but this does not seem to affect value.
