Notes

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 pleasing and unusually deep lustrous gold finish and intact suspension on all four wheels.
Virtually mint condition.

Original tyres are well-shaped.

The plinth (with SECRET INSTRUCTION arrow, so 2nd issue) on which the model sits is complete with both pull-out end tabs. Couple of very small wheel slot tears due to model movement.
