A sunny day, a few euros in my pocket and here we go, off to the car boot in Wijk aan Zee.
O
I came home with a few items that some of my fellow collectors certainly will like very much.




OK, let's start with my best find: an Oxford Diecast Routemaster bus in 1/76 which I did not have. That happens not to often, for my collection is over 400 RMs now


And then, two Volkswagen Golf, made by Lucky Toys. The police one on the left is a repaint in white, very nicely done. The one on the right is from a gift set with a caravan. The stickers are somewhat faded on the left hand side, but still present. I think I saw that caravan at the sellers stall too, but I am not sure. I am not a plastic car collector, but triggered by Andy's expertise and collection, I decided to buy these two too.

In the front, a mint and boxed (bubblewrapped) Mercedes Truck, made for the HEMA, in the era they still sold real toys. Not sure what make it is, shall remove the staples?

And finally, Rollerman watch this, a silver plated mint(ish) Rolls Royce Silver Ghost mounted on the original tray. Only the rear seat is missing, but that part is easily to obtain.

Here are some more detailed photos. Enjoy!

Andy,
I browsed through your posts and saw you have the caravan. The Golfs are available for you.
Have you noticed that the front window tab that holds the window unit in place differs from your VW Golf? Mine is more to the middle and yours are in the A pillar corner

Nice little haul you have got yourself Theo. Love the Bus and the plastic toys from Lucky and of course the Lesney 'Giftware' Rolls-Royce.


That particular example is from the 1968-69 production period and was especially modified from the normal production issue to have a more filled-in baseplate so mounting pillars could be cast for allowing the fitment onto ashtrays and trinket boxes etc, very nice and yes, it should be easy enough to find a rear seat. If you were in the UK, I would send you one through the post but I fear postage to your country will be rediculous for such an insignificant small item!

Thanks Kevin, I was pleased with the items too.

No I think that is large letter rate, which is not more than 3 UK pounds, which I am happy transfering to you

Especially the silver one is really impressive Theo! What is the tray for anyway?
