Reservation limit: 30 days

Price: 290.00

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. The rear lights are highlighted in red and the headlamps in silver.

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' gets a nasty surprise!

This example is in excellent condition; there is some paint loss on one front wing, but no other major marks on the paintwork beyond a couple of tiny scratches. In particular, the roof is unmarked and sits nice and flush when closed. Everything works as it should, and the driver and 'baddie' figures are present and correct. The suspension is still intact, and the original tyres have hardened with age but have no cracks.

The model comes with its original box which is also in very good condition. The outer box has a small tear on one side, and one of the inner flaps is repaired with tape. The inner display stand is excellent, and contains the original instruction leaflet (the envelope and spare baddie are no longer present).

A very nice example of this highly popular Corgi model..
