I got a spare wheel and tire for the trunk. Now I am looking for a suitcase.

I may restore this car one day but for now it is on display.
Here is the group it came from as you all may remember.

Not bad nick I suppose, least it has some of it's original paint left (well most of it actually) unlike the one I have is play painted.

<p>Are you looking for an original Corgi Toys suitcase? Maybe i can 3D print one and send it to you. Do you have a picture from the suitcase?</p>

The model on the box is a 5 door car interestingly!

more than 1 colour of suitcase I see too nice blue car.

Interesting they would leave out the B pillar. Not the best work from Corgi but the toy is great.

Suit cases might be nice but I don't now what to send you. I have and can get Corgi Parts if there is something you looking for but as you know, I don't have many Corgi toys and I have no used parts for them

I think you mean 4 Door as this is supposed to be a hard top if it had the B pillar. The fifth door I suppose is the trunk lid?

Re: Corgi 230 Mercedes Benz 220 SE Coupe From Kees 6 months, 4 weeks ago #12

Yup, a four door sedan with a boot/ trunk lid on it.

I did wonder what that extra little pillar on the coupe was supposed to resemble, glad somebody knew!

And, If you look at the blue one and the white one you will see another difference. The wing window or no draft window has it vertical on the blue one. Makes a triangle window you can open to get air in the car. The white one has that missing. Should have at least that for the cars age. Even convertibles had them.

Re: Corgi 230 Mercedes Benz 220 SE Coupe From Kees 6 months, 4 weeks ago #14

<p>Yes, and nr 230 has self steering, not mentioned on the box.</p>

Yes and suspension front and rear too.
