This is another of Chris Davidson's mint-in-box 1:36 scale set and a very late one in the life of Corgi. Number 382 is listed in the Great Book of Corgi as being released in May 1983, a month before the original Corgi Company went into receivership, only it is listed as being metallic blue. I suspect this is a later release in competition livery after the new owners had taken over.

There is a 1976 release quoted in The Great Book of Corgi as being 'flamboyant golden yellow' but I do not think this is that one as it is not a competition model.
