Corgi Toys 497 The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Thrushbuster
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Thrushbuster by Corgi Toys, No. 497. Near mint plus/unboxed. Dark purple-blue issue with plastic spotlights. From A Phenomenal Colleciton.
Issued between 1966-69, this Oldsmobile car inspired by the t.v. series ‘The Man From UNCLE’ has a gleaming, deep purple-blue finish, bright and complete bonnet logo , bright chrome parts, detailed cast wheels, original Corgi Toys embossed, fine tread tyres (well-shaped).
Functions perfectly – if you press the roof periscope, you can hear the ‘gun shot’, and the figures move from side to side to shoot the enemy! This is the 2nd version with plastic spotlights (to dazzle the enemy!). Earlier issue had metal spotlights. Occasional minor mark to the paint finish.
A very attractive item on display.
