Mint and boxed!
British Motor Heritage (BMH) subsidiary Tex Automotive is now offering an ever-increasing range of enthusiast car parts and accessories, not to mention a mouth-watering selection of rare or, in some cases, unique ‘mint and boxed’ model cars. A collectors’ gold mine, the selection has been amassed over many years by BMH in its role as global licensee for the Austin, Austin-Healey, MG, Morris, Rover, Triumph and Wolseley brands.
The collection comprises everything from one-off prototypes to limited edition runs, all boxed and in mint condition. A selection of the offerings can be found at www.texautomotive.com.
However, this is only a fraction of the total stock, with more examples being added to the website all the time, so collectors are advised to make regular visits to the site in order not to miss out on this exciting opportunity.
Currently viewable are such gems as the Kyosho 1/18th scale 1959 Le Mans Triumph TR3S (£49.50) and highly-detailed Sun Star 1/36th scale RAC Austin Minivan (£66). Also recently uploaded are a splendid selection of the Corgi 1/76th scale Trackside miniatures that are compatible with (and therefore the perfect complement to) 00 gauge model railway layouts. Now rarely obtainable from other sources, these highly collectable items range from individual cars and vans priced at just £4.20 to three-piece sets for a mere £10.20.
The classic car parts and accessories also available at www. texautomotive.com include no end of useful items, from EBC replacement brake parts to Samco silicone hoses and from fuel caps to Renovo car care products, not to mention such ideal and eminently affordable all year round gifts as leather driving gloves and branded key fobs.
