Another iconic US motor from the fifties in a model that lasted Corgi well into then next decade in a variety of guises - this was the first and it's a nice piece of modelling too.

According to the Great Book of Corgi the mechanical version was always black over pink and the freewheeling version was cream over pale green. Ramsay has some cross-over suggesting both versions are available in both colours. However they have all versions of the freewheeling car valued the same. There are a couple of other variations to look out for which don't affect value. Some cars have spun hubs, some turned hubs, early cars have '1959' cast into the rear number plate and this is left off later releases.

As you can see mine is playworn but I'm not looking to replace it as it is straight, original and complete

Green body, cream roof with 1959 number plate
