Corgi 261 James Bond's Aston Martin D.B.5. Gold model and 1st issue. About Mint. and boxed. Issued 1965-69
One of the most popular Corgi models ever, this is an early issue, released at the start of the production run
This stunning model is in all original condition with none of the reproduction accessories, so often added with this issue.
The car is fully functioning with its ejector roof and bullet proof rear screen protector. The front machine guns are a little stiff. complete with both figures. Looking unused and barely handled, this example has a virtually mint, all original, bright gold finish:
Roof closes flush. Suspension is wonderfully firm on all four spoked wheels. Fine tread original tyres are supple with no flat spots. The model comes with all accessories, a full Secret Instruction Packet including a spare bandit and Promotional Leaflet. It has been opened.
Note this issue has a 'bare metal' bullet proff rear screen protector.
Condition About Mint
The paintwork is outstanding and this model looks as though it has barely been out of its packaging. I can find no fault butand probably as it left the factory.
Box Very, Near Mint
All packing, internal and external is to a high standard of quality. This is an early 1st issue revealed by the plain inner card base which is plain orange. There is not even a tear on the wheels recesses.
Very sought after model and a superb example.
