Corgi 261 James Bond's Aston Martin D.B.5. Very near mint /boxed. 2nd issue. Version WITHOUT INDICATOR LIGHT CASTING. With Secret Instruction Packet.1st issue box. With additional Corgi Toys Price label with dog logo. From The Ross-on-Wye Collection.
One of the most popular Corgi models ever, issued between 1965-69.
This James Bond Aston Martin is in all original condition with none of the reproduction accessories, rife with this issue.
The car is fully functioning, complete with both figures. It has a lustrous gold finish and intact suspension on all four wheels.
Note this casting does not have the indicator light detail, which was not present on later issues. For more details on Corgi 261 generally, please do refer to our Blog article.
Original tyres are well-shaped.*
Shows minimal handling and wear – note the gold finish still present on the bullet shield – a good indicator that this model has barely been handled or used.
Occasional little mark to the paint finish.
The plinth (without SECRET INSTRUCTION arrow, so 1st issue) on which the model sits is complete with both pull-out end tabs. Minor wear. One little wheel slot tear.
The Instruction Packet has been slit open and inside there are the important Secret Instructions which detail the retractable machine guns, opening roof and ejector seat, rear bullet screen and telescopic over-riders.
All have been tested and work perfectly! The packet also contains the spare villain, but no badge.
The 1st issue outer box is clean, brightly-coloured and complete. Light wear. Note that since it is 1st issue there is no shading detail around the lettering ASTON MARTIN DB5 on the box face and no black border around the JAMES BOND’S lettering.
Period Corgi Price Label for this model is included too!
