This is from the era when cars got batteries and working lights. Both
Dinky and Corgi were at it. This is a slightly crude attempt, you push
down the back end of the car and the brake lights come on. There's quite
a big sacrifice in modelling to achieve a so-what feature. On the whole
I prefer the previous few years' fintail Mercs which Dinky produced. I
actually owned one of these when I was a kid, the best bit to me was the
screw in the base which meant I could take it to bits.
