1972 "Prototype red tyres"




The red tyred with long tips COULD have happened. The number would have been so small it wouldn't have been noticed. What Corgi did first is assemble a few prototypes of the red tyred, to see how it looked before putting it into production, whilst the red hubs one was still being produced, so therefore would have used the long tips and the same bottom. Its possible they sent them out to the shops, or the man who owns it knew someone at Corgi.

This version did happen, but only in prototype form. They could have been sent to the shops however, but to find one today would be impossible. There would only have been 5 or so made.


The body would differ from short tailfin cars and it would probably differ from the bathub versions by having the axle posts spaced differently.
