Corgi 497 The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Thrushbuster. Very near mint/unboxed. Dark purplish-blue issue with plastic spotlights. From The David Frank Collection.
Issued between 1966-69, this Oldsmobile car has a gleaming, deep purple-blue finish, bright, fresh and complete bonnet logo, bright chrome parts, detailed cast wheels. If you press the roof periscope the figure moves from side to side to shoot the enemy! This is the second issue with plastic chromed spotlights (to dazzle the enemy). Fine tread, well-shaped, original tyres with ‘Corgi Toys’ embossed.
Little chip on the front bumper and a few tiny marks besides. Merits a box!
