417 - Land-Rover Breakdown Truck


Beautifully modelled, this brightly painted breakdown truck was manufactured by Corgi between 1960 and 1963. The bodywork is based on an earlier ‘Series 2’ Corgi Land Rover, number 406. Despite having a swivelling roof-mounted spotlight, its best feature is undoubtedly a fully-working winch, ingeniously operated by turning a spare wheel on the Land Rover’s nearside body. Corgi revived the model in 1968, giving it a new 477 catalogue number.

The new version was similar in appearance but featured a plastic half-hood and a different Corgi livery. Later models dispensed with the spare wheel for operating the winch. Needless to say, it is the original 417 model that collectors desire the most!

Looks and acts like the one I had in the 70's

Again, a great reproduction of a child hood favorite for my adult collection. Bravo. Well done.

In the States we don’t refer to them as Breakdown Trucks - we call them Tow Trucks or Wreckers. That’s what is so cool about this model. To me it’s so British and quirky. I really like the functionality of the tow cable. Very fun and a very well executed model.

Have 1968 Model!

I can't really write a review of this new model but I have a well played with 1968 model! I have to get the new one to tow the old one!!
