ROVER 2000

IN MONTE CARLO TRIM

The Rover 2000 models are all nice and this one is no exception - the novel features being Monte Carlo trim and 'Trans-o-Lite' headlamps whereby a solid piece of Perspex carries light from the back window through to the headlamps. The Rover P6 was (and still is) a handsome car and this is a fine model of it.

Corgi had been doing so well with Monte Carlo Rally Minis they tried a few more cars in 1965 and we got this Rover and a Citroen DS. The rally Rover stayed in the range from 1965 to 1966 and is always white over maroon. You will get a premium for a green interior and for a box meant for the No.252 Rover with over-stickers, all versions are hard to find and highly priced.

Mine has been in the wars a bit - some of the Trans-o-Lite stuff is missing from the near side headlamps (pushed back into the car I think), the decals are scuffed and in common with all the dark maroon Corgis the paint is chipped - I should probably look for a better one.
