Corgi Toys No. 270 James Bond's Aston Martin
James Bond Aston Martin by Corgi Toys, No. 270. Very near mint/boxed. In 'Winged' box with full Secret Instruction Packet. From The Cheshire Collection.
First issue from 1968.
This sought-after James Bond Aston Martin model with gold bumpers has the opening roof feature with the ejector seat mechanism functioning. Both figures of James Bond and villain are still seated inside. It has the rear bullet screen which can be raised and lowered, telescopic over-riders, retractable machine guns, revolving number plates and of course the red tyre slasher blades on the rear wheels. Original tyres look as-new. The suspension is fine on all four detailed spoked wheels.
Paint finish is very close to mint condition (close inspection finds one little touch-in on the driver’s side rear wing). Hard to fault otherwise!
Slightly larger than the 261 James Bond Aston Martin, this model is presented in the decorative 1st issue ‘winged box’.
These elaborate boxes so easily get torn or suffer heavy wear. This box is complete with a part-unpunched header card. Some age-handlign wear but the blister section is undamaged and still firmly attached ti the card. and thee is barely any front edge ruffling to the card.
Underside shows creasing:
The removable card plinth is crisp, clean and strongly-coloured. Inside, we found the all-important Secret Instruction Packet which has been opened and contains all of the hoped for accessories! The Secret Instructions, the sheet of number plates, the badge and a spare villain.
An iconic James Bond item.
