Notes

Issued between 1966-69, this Oldsmobile car has a gleaming, deep purple-blue finish, complete bonnet logo (some age transparency), bright chrome parts, detailed cast wheels. Fine original tyres. If you press the roof periscope the figure moves from side to side to shoot the enemy! A sought-after Corgi model; this is the earliest version of the Thrushbuster with metal spotlights (to dazzle the enemy!).
