The model - the subject of this model is Daimler Fleetline D890, new to KMB in December 1976, and withdrawn in 1988.   The model bears little more than a passing resemblance to the prototype, which is a two-door vehicle with a much more angular shape.  A point to note is that the front number plate is UK style white-on-black, while the rear plate is modern black-on-yellow!   A vehicle of this vintage would have had white-on-red plates.   The model was packaged in a cardboard presentation box, similar to those used by Corgi for certain KMB subjects.
