Yet another (and the last) outing for the good old faithful ID19 Citroen Safari casting. Again in Alpine guise but this time no mention of Winter Olympics, just Alpine Rescue. This final version was released in 1970 and remained in the catalogue until 1972. You will see this same casting in yellow as a wildlife safari car (No. 436) and two other white ski versions - 1964 Olympics (No.475) and Corgi Ski Club (No.475). The Alpine Rescue version is the scarcest and most valuable of all.

There should be stuff on the roof rack, a mountain rescue bloke and a big dog to go with it, but they are long since lost. One thing I'm not sure of is that drop-down bit of the tailgate - should it be black? or did a previous owner make it so? No matter, the fold-down seats still work nicely and it has cast spoked wheels.
