Corgi Toys 258 The Saint's Volvo
The "Saint's" Car Volvo P.1800 by Corgi Toys, No. 258. Very near mint/boxed. Nice box! First issue with a black Saint logo figure on a cream background. From The Bluehouse Collection of fine Corgi.
First issue model introduced in 1965 in white, with a bright red interior and a black “Saint” matchstick figure transfer on the bonnet. The car is in virtually mint condition. Displays well with a crisp white paint finish, and a complete “Saint” matchstick figure on the bonnet in black with a cream background. Jewelled headlights, perfect suspension on shaped spun wheels, driver. As-new original tyres. Couple of negligible marks to the paint finish if scrutinised closely.
Note the factory applied little drips of silver paint in one small area on the driver’s side immediately above the raised body line.
The blue and yellow picture box is extremely fresh with strong colours on crisp card. Corgi Club Membership Form. Hard t0 find this good.
