The Hillman Husky was part of the first Corgi range in 1956. Slightly larger scale than the rest of the original release range and a good model of the short wheelbase estate version of the Minx. It was originally dark blue or tan in colour or a greyish light brown, the latter two probably being the same colour originally as some sources only quote 'dark fawn. The original launch cars stuck closely to the colours of the real cars they were modelled on, which made them rather dull.

In 1959 the Hillman was part of the re-release of some of the launch models in new two-tone colour schemes, being seen as a bit jollier than the fawns and greens of the originals. The new colour scheme was metallic silver and metallic blue and it stayed in the range in these colours up to 1961. Of the colour options the two-tone is the better priced item
