The result of an across the world trade with the one we know as Tinfoil Hat, Heres a Corgi Whizzwheels Land Rover…with a wheel size error!
Tinfoil posted this recently, noting that it was possibly the oldest error he’s come across. Since I love Land Rovers, and error casts, we worked out a trade. I hope hes as happy with my end of the trade as I was with his…I suspect we’ll all benefit from what I sent him, however!
So here is the Corgi, clearly the paint is all gone, the windows busted, but the rear wheels are obviously smaller than the fronts. There is no indication that the rivits were ever drilled, so its entirely likely that this was a factory error. He found this in an antique store in Australia, and snagged it for me. I picked up another nearly new version of the cast, to illustrate the original color and wheels it should come with. I love this little thing, and it now holds a prized place in my LR collection. Also kinda fitting that an old Series III, late in its life, ended up literally halfway across the world from where it spent most of its life...as so many full size ones now do!
