485 - BMC Mini Countryman


£35.99

This feature-laden Mini Countryman model was an all-new tooling despite its similarity with the earlier (448) Mini Police Van. A bold release from the Corgi team, the star feature was undoubtedly its roof-mounted surf board, complete with a plastic surfer figure. Jewelled headlights and an aerial completed the look. It was introduced into the range in 1965 and stayed in production until 1969.

Despite being manufactured for four years it was only ever painted aqua green. In an additional note for Mini enthusiasts, there were two versions of the actual car. Morris-badged Minis were known as the Traveller, whereas Corgi chose to model the near-identical Austin variant, the Countryman.

Size Length: 80mm Width: 35mm Height: 43mm (inc surfboards)
