This was a nice find , The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow ,the box is a bit tatty but complete , it has the wider superfast wheels and the rarer silver base.

This one came up cheap a few weeks back, the Sierra Cosworth , I have a white one stored away somewhere with my original toys, nice to see the the Woolworths price label on the box.

Another of my childhood cars I have replaced is the Ford Corsair with the boat on the roof, this is a nice boxed example although the tow hook is missing and someone has painted the rear lights but it is much better condition than the one that survived in my toybox.

it certainly looks the part. Is the boat an original one or a replacement?

the boat and roof rack all look to be original.
