Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Ref: 32217

For restoration
Fair, Unboxed
Price: 16.50

This is the earliest version of the Corgi James Bond Aston Martin, released in 1965 - not to be confused with later versions and re-releases! In gold with red interior and 'wire' wheels with black tyres. There are several operating features: a rear bullet-proof screen pops up when you press the exhaust pipe, and switches on the side operate the extending front machine guns and overriders, and of course the famous ejector seat. Press the switch and the roof opens, the passenger seat flips up, and the 'baddie' passenger gets a nasty surprise!

This unboxed example is in played-with condition, with paint chipping around the edges and the almost inevitable mark on the roof from where it hits the bodywork when it opens. Unfortunately the suspension has collapsed on one side, a common fault with this model, and the tyres have some cracks. Nevertheless, all the operating features still work albeit rather stiffly; the bullet-proof shield needs manual assistance to make it pop up. The James Bond driver figure is still in place as is the passenger figure.

Length: 95mm.
Approx Years: 1965 - 1969
