Corgi Toys GS12a; Grand Prix Set; Export only version

 

There were several racing car sets over the years, from the simple Vanwall-BRM-Lotus set to the all singing, all dancing Silverstone set with stacks of cars, buildings people and all you could ever want. This one is somewhere in between. It gives you a couple of Formula One racers and a Le Mans Porsche with a privateer's tow truck and a low-loader trailer - along with some figures, bales and bollards that I don't have. I also think the Type 2 VW should be white.

The set was made from 1968 through to 1971 for export only. In 1970 the line-up was changed to pick up some revised models and the packaging was changed, at this time it was also released into the UK market and deleted in 1972

These photos were put together in November 2011 using items then in my collection
