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!

Land Rover Breakdown Truck

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

Overall a great model

This Land Rover breakdown Truck is a great recreation of a childhood memory and overall is well made and detailed. One slight issue I had was that the first version I received had the silver paint worn off on the front bumper where it had rubbed against the box in transit. The Model Club kindly replaced it but the replacement also suffers from the same issue. Overall though, a great model and I'm so enjoying the Corgi Model Club - nostalgia in a box!
