Another image of the Morestone/Budgie Wolseley Police car. This one is the Budgie version released in 1961 with the Police signs on the radiator. An impressive die-cast.

Corgi Morris Minor - three versions

Chris, yours and mine are the same model, just yours is original. I did not know there was a decal on the grill. It also looks as though the coils on your antenna are longer than on mine. Mine were reproductions. I sold this on eBay about 4 years about and got quite a good dollar for it considering what I spent on it. Thanks for showing yours.

Hi Greendolly

This one looks like a re-issue by Promod. Note your model does not have a split windscreen and the quarter light has also been omitted.

Promod also issued a version in \'Panda\' car livery. I have an example and hope to post a pic soon.

Hi Nobleco

The Budgie version has an area on the grill to act as a guide for the sticker. Morestone\'s earlier version did not have this also Budgie added a rear plate for another \'POLICE\' sticker. In conclusion I would say that the version you renovated extremely well was the earlier Morestone varient. There is another version made in the mid 1980\'s by Promod. This version is posted by Greendolly. Hope all this helps.

Cheers Chris
