Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Ref: 39979

Excellent, box Excellent

Price: 320.00

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 superb condition with near perfect paintwork. There are a few tiny marks around the front end, and very slight box scuffing on the roof. Everything works smoothly, and the driver and 'baddie' figures are present and correct. The suspension is intact on all four wheels.

The model comes in its original box which is also in excellent condition, with no damage other than slight wear along the flap hinges. It is complete with the original 'Secret Instructions' envelope containing operating instructions, Model Club slip, and an unused 007 adhesive lapel badge. This is an early issue, so also contains a 'Model Car Makers to James Bond' leaflet; a couple of ticks have been written on the back. The only thing missing is a spare passenger figure.

A very nice example of this highly popular Corgi model, hard to find in such beautiful original condition.
