Corgi or Dinky or...?

Is it genuine or is it fake?

Corgi or Dinky or...?

Postby Thepowerofdreams » Tue Jul 05, 2016 1:34 pm

Hello dear all,
can someone identify this ramp?
I did own a similar one in blue, which was a Corgi Toys - but on this one, there is no manufacturer listed.
The size of the ramp itself is roughly 16cm x 5cm
Best regards
Wolfgang

Almost exactly the same as Corgi 1401 except the colour and the tread plates are different.
Maybe a very early version or a rip off copy.

I believe the Red version is from Corgi but not marketed under the Corgi Toys 'Brand' name. It may have been for one of the outlets that Mettoy/Corgi had contracts with to supply toys such as the 'BHS Group'.

The base does or should at least have MADE IN GT BRITAIN cast onto it's surface.

When this became part of the Cori Toys range it seems to have had some re-tooling as several details can be seen to be different between the Two models.
