The third version of the Corgi Land Rover Wrecker is not that much of a leap. The casting is the same as the previous version being a model of the 1960 ish Series 2 Land Rover - (as opposed to the series 2a Land Rover which came out in 1962 and was was the model which took the real Land Rover right through the Sixties).

The main change is the replacement of the tin tilt with a plastic one. Also on this version of the truck you will see either spun hubs or cast spoked hubs. The spare wheel on the side which is used to wind the winch was replaced part way through the run with a cast silver knob, similar to the one used on late release Priestman Shovels. You will also see it with Whizzwheels. Values are similar for most versions, there being a slight premium for the one with the spare wheel, rather than the knob.

This is a slightly battered example which arrived with the cord and the hook missing. The ones you see are Steve Flowers' replacements.
