With some of the old Corgis one can refer to them as models and be serious about it. Yes they were primarily toys, but take for example the Simon Snorkel fire engine. That was also a fine piece of scale model engineering, or the old Renault Floride which was an excellent detailed model of an elegant car - they were also both toys. This is just a toy, nothing else.

The GP Beach Buggy was available from 1970 to 1976. Colours were: Metallic red or blue, gloss red or orange; all with a white plastic roof and maroon surfboards on the roof. They are not hard to find and values are low.

You will also see it in purple metallic, this is from Gift Set GS26 Beach Buggy & Sailing Boat and has nicer wheels, a tow bar, no roof or surfboards and should have a driver figure.
