Wow that's a number of Volvo P1800s! From what I can gather mine is one of the earlier models. While there is some hardening on the tyres, it springs well, and rolls nicely. I'll probably leave as is because I'm not too great on a fiddly resto and I'd hate to mess it up.
Another that's play worn that I haven't restored is this mk3 Cortina GXL. However, I have to take responsibility for playing with it! My dad worked for Ford and when they released the mk 3 in 1971, a number of these Graham Hill versions went to main dealers as a promotion. I got one at the tender age of 8 and played the hell out of it.

Class! I’d one as a kid, I got up one morning and it was wrecked. My brother told me that it was stolen by joyriders and I believed him. Later found out he’d stood on it or dropped something on it by accident😂
I’ve only ever seen in gold or the police one so that must be rare 😎

Got a few new bits in the post, I've got pretty much every version of the Corgi Mazda B1600 pickup, but this one came up still in it's box. The cardboard is a bit beaten up but the truck is as new

The box is great on this Polistil MK3 Escort though
