The model was recoloured to light green gloss with a chartreuse yellow roof. This led to some cream bodies being fitted with yellow roofs and some pale green bodies being fitted with dark green roofs, Both types are rare but this is a commonly faked variation so very careful examination for tool marks, fresh paint damage or fresh metal showing at the rivetts is advised. The pale green version can be found with red or green seats and grille and a body coloured or black plastic steering wheel.
The model was again recoloured this time to dark metallic green with a black roof and again roofs got fitted to the wrong body colour leaving two more rare versions, pale green with a black roof and metallic green with a chartreuse yellow roof and like the earlier issues fakes abound so extreme caution should be taken when purchasing any of these variations. The metallic green Benzes all had black plastic steering wheels and the final metallic green issue had the giftware mounting holes removed from the baseplate.
The Benz was deleted in 1974 to be replaced by the Riley MPH but in 1985 the model was re-released as part of the 'connoisseurs collection' where it was recoloured to black body with blue panels and a black roof, This version has light brown seats, chromed wire wheels and a 4 prong spare tyre carrier.
