This item is sold.


Issued between 1966-69, this Oldsmobile car has a gleaming, deep purple-blue finish, complete bonnet logo (fresh and bright), bright chrome spotlights, detailed cast wheels. Fine original tyres. If you press the roof periscope the figure moves from side to side to shoot the enemy. This is the version with plastic chromed spotlights (to dazzle the enemy!).
A beautiful and virtually mint car.




Often lost or even replaced with a copy, this Thrushbuster comes with its original Waverley ring. Changing image on the ring face of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin.
The bright and complete card plinth (version with red section on base) has barely any wear. Just a little rubbed area.




Lots of info about the U.N.C.L.E organisation on box reverse as well as pictures and signatures of the T.V. series protagonists.
The outer box is complete and bright. Very light wear. Shop stamp from Berne, Switzerland on the inside of one large end flap. Corgi Club Membership Form.
