This is a very nice model of a very smart sports car with lots of lovely detail, the engine and the interior are very well done. The car was introduced in 1967 and stayed in the range until 1969. It is red and white with a blue rear window or blue and white with a yellow rear window. The red & white car can have RN1 or RN60. The blue car gets the best price followed by the red car with RN60.

The one on the left is a good example with little playwear. The rear number plate is amusing, it is from an Airfix kit of the Triumph TR4a but it looks strangely appropriate on this car. A previous owner must have been an Airfix modeller. Funnily enough I did have this car as an Airfix model (and the Triumph), I put it on the rack above the Rayburn to dry once it was finished, but a little close to the very hot flue, after that it had to be a trackside accident in Scalextric layouts. Why o why then did I buy the wreck on the right when my red one is so lovely? Look closely, there are two driver figures inside the car. Someone at Swansea must have decided the driver would be lonely in there all by himself and added a passenger. I've never seen this before and it is a real curiosity. I hope they get on together, they've been in there now for forty odd years.
