Mk 1 Jag - wow. However like the Standard Vanguard, the Ford Consul and the Morris Cowley this car was superseded in 1957 by a face-lifted model. It had slimmer window pillars and fully exposed rear wheels - the Mk2 Jag, now known as the Morse. The lead time to production on these models was not that long - why I wonder did Corgi choose to go with obsolete models when it would have been just as easy to use the latest model?

The mechanical version of the Jag Mk1 was released in March 1957 and was deleted in 1960. Like all the mechanicals it has a flywheel friction motor inside driving the rear wheels. You will also see this casting (in both this early version with no interior detail or suspension and in a later version with both added) without the friction motor in white or yellow and also as a Fire Service car. There are no listed variations to 208m. It is always metallic blue.
