This is the ‘most fantasmagorical’ Corgi toy, in all original, assumed mint condition. Old shop stock – and the box does not appear to have ever been opened. In storage for the decades! Gleaming bright, with all four original figures seated inside. Version with gold band on the radiator.
Note this is the correct plinth for this issue which is of course shorter and without sides.
The blue card cloud scene (often missing) is in fine condition. Corgi Club Membership Form.
This is the harder to find smaller box version. Note the printed ‘ALBERT R.BROCCOLI PRESENTS’ in the top left corner of the header card. Cellophane fronted window box is strongly-coloured, clean, and happily free of the usual crease on the box reverse where the header card meets the main body of the box. Original cellophane is notably intact. Card is vibrant band crisp. So fresh – and really difficult to find in this condition.
Note the period handwritten note on the box underside.
