What an egregious pair of motor cars were the Ford Consul Classic 315 and Ford Consul Capri 335. But they were sadly short lived being late to market and in competition with Ford's own Cortina and just being too extreme in terms of styling for the average buyer at the time, what a shame they never lasted because they are just so wonderfully camp! One of these or a Wolseley 1500? A Caesar Salad or Brown Windsor Soup?

Corgi made the Consul Classic from 1961 to 1965. Most of the cars are pinky/beige with a dark pink roof. Some of these have the usual; grey baseplate and some have it in the body colour, these latter cars getting a reasonable premium on the value.

You will also see it in vacuum plated god from the 'Golden Guinea' gift set which also contained a plated Bentley Continental and a Chevrolet Corvair - a curious choice of cars I always thought.
