Corgi Gift Set 40 The Avengers. Issued 1966-1969
For 3 years only this wonderful gift set was a boys and even girls dream. Whether for Christmas or a birthday it was a very special present and depicted a very popular action TV drama at the time. There were colour variations with a green or red Bentley model and various wheel colours.
This set comprises of John Steed driving his red Bentley with silver wire wheels and Emma Peel in white standing aside her White Lotus Elan sports car. This model has suspension and shaped spun wheels with treaded tyres. There are 3 original umbrellas. These are so often missing or replaced with repro parts. An outer pictorial box with inner stand and picture back drop complete.

The Bentley occasional light rub marks and the Lotus 2 or 3 tiniest nicks probably from the factory which you will see if you study the pictures carefully. The4 complete set is totally original.
