This is a true hard-core Corgi from the absolute peak of the brand. This old Commer PB van did such great service for them appearing in all sorts of finishes and a number of underlying structures, while always looking consistent. It is a  really well solved set of engineering puzzles. Not only to you get vans, mini-buses, pickups, milk floats and emergency service vehicles, some of which have electrics of a couple of different designs, you also have the Constructor set.

The Ambulance was available as a stand alone item with a fixed minibus back body or in the Constructor Gift Set (GS24) where the white chassis/cab could have this ambulance back or be swapped for a milk-float. You have to admire those Corgi boys & girls.

The Commer Ambulance was added to the range in February 1964 and remained in the range for two years. You will see the fixed body truck in white or off-white/cream and the version from the Constructor set, with its detachable back-body in white. No version seems to attract a premium, but all are fairly highly valued for a Corgi of this period.
