How to give a new lease of life to an aging model - and to add play value, Police cars are much more fun and open up all sorts of possibilities. The Riley Pathfinder civilian model had been part of the first 1956 release of Corgi cars. Here it is again a couple of years later in June 1958 getting its second wind as Corgi's first ever Police car. The trick must have worked because they did it again the following January with the Jag Mk1, turning it into a Fire Chief car.

The Riley Pathfinder Police Car was always black with a roof beacon reading 'POLICE' and having a bell on one side and a siren on the other. The bell, according to the Great Book of Corgi, modelled from the real thing, is frequently missing. The car was deleted in 1962 and there are no listed variations.

This one is nice and bright too, shame about the aerial and the bell.
