Corgi Toys 282; Morris Mini-Cooper Rally; White & Black, Racing Stripe

It took me a while to work out what this is. It is the Mini-Cooper Magnifique from 1968 being given the WhizzWheels treatment. The sunroof has been removed and it has been given a competition finish, with a racing stripe and a black bonnet. It should have racing number 177 on the doors as a nod to the 1967 Monte Carlo Mini - either that or they had some stickers left over. It remained in production from 1971 to 1974 and sales were fairly low so prices are a bit higher. They are not very common, like many of the WhizzWheels warm-overs you just do not see so many of them, and those you do see tend to be pretty much bashed up.

This Corgi Toy was sourced in October 2014 from eBay
