Hi Craig .. its based on a 1964 JCB 3C with side door, and the "ram" on the roof is the spring for the back window opening , like this one with the window open

Oh no Craig, i had nothing to do with what corgi have made .. 1/50th scale is really too small, but i belive the corgi model was to come as a load for a low loader, but they cancelled the low loader and brought the dirty 3C out on its own :dizzy:

Sold a box full of models lately for what I thought was a fair price . The only model I didn't check out price wise was this one as I thought they were fairly common.
DOH they are now actually selling for between £70 and £100 on Ebay as they are rare. So if you have one be aware :)
