This model is the Corgi 458-A-2 ERF 64G Tipper Truck in Red and Yellow.

There are no opening parts. The cab and chassis are painted red with the headlights, bumper, grille, and ERF badge picked out in silver. The other features are cast into the body, including the body lines, doors, fuel tank, the side boxes, and the ERF emblem/name badge on the radiator grille. The rear of the model is painted yellow, and again all the features are cast.

There is no interior, but the model has glazing which is clear plastic in the cab area.

All wheels are of the "shaped" type - spun, polished wheel hubs with separate rubber tyres, pressure fitted to steel axles.

The base plate, actually the underside of the chassis, is red painted metal and is marked in the centre with "CORGI, TOYS" on two lines at the centre front, "ERF Model 64G" at the centre rear on two lines, and "Made in, GT Britain" on two lines just forward of the rear axle. The plain tin cab base is held in place with a single rivet at the rear and a body locating lug at the front.

This model was issued between June 1958 and 1966, in a stated scale of 1:56, and 943,000 were sold.
