Another example of Corgi living its life backwards. This model has been around for years in various guises with a steering mechanism controlled from the roof. Steered via a roof-mounted spare wheel as an East African safari rally car and via a blue beacon with the German Police car. Now it has a steering wheel as it is a driving school car.

However the earlier ones had opening boot and bonnet - or whatever they are on a Beetle - this final effort at a steering model loses these details, next time out it loses the steering too. Enough said

The 1975 re-release was number 401, nearly the same as number 400. The difference was that401 was in a box with a diorama with a set of bollards to drive around.
