417 - Land-Rover Breakdown Truck


Beautifully modelled, this brightly painted breakdown truck was manufactured by Corgi between 1960 and 1963. The bodywork is based on a Series 1 which it shares with the 406. Despite having a swivelling roof-mounted spotlight, its best feature is undoubtedly a fully-working winch, ingeniously operated by turning a spare wheel on the Land Rover’s nearside body. Corgi revived the model in 1968, giving it a new 477 catalogue number.

The new version was similar in appearance but featured a plastic half-hood and a different Corgi livery. Later models dispensed with the spare wheel for operating the winch. Needless to say, it is the original 417 model that collectors desire the most!

More a toy than a model.

This is more a toy than a detailed model, but is none the worse for it, just be aware of it, overall it’s quite nice with a working winch etc, price is good too.

The one with no steering wheel or seats.

Nice model but there is no steering wheel or seats.

Not the same as the regular release

They may look the same at first glance but this is greatly different to the £10 cheaper Corgi regular re-release.
Note different bumpers, different jib, different wheels, different body shape, interior (with and without). You really need to get both to display together.


Just looked on the Corgi website and this model is £21.99 !! How can you price this at £31.99 and even at the club price it’s £22.99 plus p&p. We are being ripped off, why?

Land Rover Breakdown Truck

I love the attention to detail, and the very clever way that the spare wheel is also the winch.
