This model is the Corgi 460-A-3 ERF 64G Neville Cement Tipper Truck in Yellow and Silver.

There are no opening parts. The cab and chassis are painted yellow 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 silver. Again all the features are cast, except for the red plastic caps on the top of the cement carrier. A red, blue, and white decal reading "Tunnel Cement" is centred on the top of the carrier.

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 yellow 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 September 1959 and 1966, in a stated scale of 1:56, and 549,000 were sold.
