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 in virtually mint condition.
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 has fared better than many you will see – with an intact, and firmly-attached bubble section. Light wear to the card includes a fine crease visible on reverse.
The removable card plinth is crisp, clean and strongly-coloured. Minor back edge separation. Inside, we found the all-important fresh and clean Secret Instruction Packet which has never been opened and so will contain contains all of the hoped for accessories. The Secret Instructions, the badge, sheet of number plates and a spare villain .
An iconic James Bond item.
