This wonderful boxed Corgi Gift Set 38 Monte Carlo Rallye is very scarce having only been issued for two years in 1965-7. It depicted an era of rallying when at its peak of popularity. Now it still continues to be a very desirable set for collectors and retains its special status.
This set comprises of three cars: the 318 Mini Cooper S, 322 Rover 2000 and the 326 Citroen DS19 with roof arial. It is presented in a pictorial picture box with an excellent internal packing piece, stand and back drop. The mini in red with white roof racing number 52. Rover in metallic plum with white roof and racing number 136. Finally, the Citroen in pale blue with white roof and racing number 75. All cars have shaped spun hubs and black treaded tyres.
The Mini is in excellent condition with a very small mark to the roof corner above the driver. The Rover is in good condition with a small number of marks to the roof as illustrated in the photos. The Citroen is in excellent condition with a very small mark to the bonnet next to the middle of the windscreen. The transfers are in very good condition. All treaded tyres and shaped spun hubs and base unmarked.
The original box is in excellent condition with no splits, tears or staining but does show the patina you would expect in a box of this age.
The original internal packing piece is in excellent condition.
