This model is the Corgi C503/01 Ford Escort Van in white with Dunlop Tyres signwriting.

This model has opening back doors. The front headlights are a silver painted part of the grill and front number plate [blank] which are a separate part in black plastic which has been inserted into the white body casting. Both front and rear indicators are represented by mask sprayed orange sections.

The entire interior is a pale tan plastic with black plastic steering wheel inset into the dash. The glazing is clear with molded wipers and rear view mirror on the front windscreen. There is no glazing in the rear doors.

All wheels are of the "speed wheel" type - hollow, one piece black plastic with a chrome 12 "spoke" patterned center "hub".

The base plate is black plastic and is marked with "CORGI" in the centre top, "Ford Escort 55" at the centre bottom on three lines, and a tiny "Made in GT Britain" at the very rear on the left hand side. It is held in place with two machined rivets.

This model was issued in April 1984.
