Its taken me years to find one of these and when I get it it is bashed to bits, never mind it's another slot filled

Here we have the Corgi modellers at their peak, they have taken a car which was in real life a pug and created an elegant model. The Mini Marcos is very well modelled indeed, however it is not improved by losing those nice take-off Mini-Lite wheels from the original release and replacing them with these rather dull Whizzwheels. The racing colours suit it though.

The car was converted to Whizzwheels & renumbered in 1972 and remained in the range for just one more year. It is usually white with red, white and blue racing stickers and RN7. A verion without the stickers is listed as is a mid blue version from a Gift Set. The Gift Set version is the one to look for.
