This is such a well designed, well modelled and well made little van. I had the Spot-On version of the Mini Van which came nowhere close. The Spot-On one had nice Post Office Telephones or Royal Mail decals - but it didn't have the opening doors. You hardly ever see a full-size Mini-Van these days, but when you do it is just amazing how tiny they are.

Corgi added this Police dog van to the range in 1964, it remained in the range until 1969. The only variation to the van is that some of them have spun hubs and some have cast hubs. One of the guides quotes a premium for a box with an upstand, but I think that is a bit of a red herring. These are always expensive and boxed examples are really very expensive, whatever the box.

Policeman and dog both gone, still a nice van although a bit battered. One door does come off if you pull it, aerial gone - has it been policing in Liverpool?
