VW Golf Mk1 1.1L by Corgi Vanguards

I was very excited to find this Mk1 by Corgi, mainly as I have nothing in my collection in this colour, being "Miami Blue" and it comes with an interesting history.



The detail is spot on as to be expected from Corgi and is displayed in a protective display case. It also comes with a Limited Production card, this one in particular is 0486 of 1000.

An interesting read on the collectors card is the history of this particular model. It is based on a guy Dale Smith, who originally bought the car with 40000 miles on the clock. After substantial restoration he brought the car back to originality with regards to both body work and engine. The car has won Dale over 20 trophies to date at numerous "Show and Shine" competitions.
