Here is a Rover 3500, by Corgi, in 1:64 reduction. This one is in excellent condition, with an opening rear hatch, and a hitch. This poor little guy is practically screaming for some detail work on the front and rear ends. Maybe if he stops screaming and asks in a normal voice like a proper talking toy car...

I was surprised to see four rivets on the base, but I imagine that a plastic base might bend or warp over time and start looking a bit sloppy...or, maybe they had a powerful riveter’s union in Great Britain that got extra work for their rank and file.
