Looks like the green one was the first version in 1965 (http://www.vintagebritishdiecasts.co.uk/1index/xx12c.htm). I thought it was quite a cool one to come up for auction because the paint seems to be flawless and the rivet is fine. I've dealt with this seller a few times and they're very good and reliable so I guess for ten dollars less I wouldn't hesitate. For 35 dollars I'd expect a box, no matter what condition. Guess I'm getting a bit picky now.
I have no idea what the rarity of this green Rover would be and don't care.
Or whether I would pay 35 bucks for it or not - okay probably not. But it sure seems to be in nice shape.
I would be tempted just for the condition of it.
But like Kiwi said, I would expect a box with it for that money, and I don't even collect cardboard.
15 dollars less and I would consider it.
Errors of omission are worthless when they can be easily repeated at home unless still sealed in a Lesney blister.As I said before,its easy to remove the windows either with a screw driver or by carefully popping off the base and refitting it.This toy is worth max $5,no shortage of these in this shape here....
Definitely passing on this one then. I believe it to be a genuine error and not a manipulation but the price is just too much. My ambulance and Cortina cost less than that and they were minty fresh with a minty fresh box. So that settles that.
