This is as far as I can go, I need to find my old wrecker out, I have repaired the broken piece by using a tiny fragment off the Airborne roof I cut down for the Bedford.
I have managed to get the tiny barrel holder back in but I think there is one missing from the other side, this one will be work in progress & hopefully it chime again, I am waiting on a new set of stickers to come.

Good job you have done. This should work for you now.
I also like the color you chose. Looks really good in yellow.

I chose the colours as Walls used these colours too , a bit later on though from this van age , I have a few originals so it's nice to change one slightly, decals added & just the chimes to sort, I still can't find my wrecker to do this.

I managed to get a donar , the musical mech worked but the teeth were missing , luckily the ones on the one I have were complete so it now plays all good.

Now that link worked Andy. Excellent sound and many thanks for showing us the restored working model of the Corgi Ice Cream van with working chime sound ringing for customers.
