The 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88 did sterling service for Corgi and why not - it stood for the essential early Sixties Yankee four door sedan very well indeed. The civilian saloon appeared later in 1962 with the military staff car and the Man from UNCLE Thrushbuster following in the next couple of years.

This model also shows Corgi to have truly moved on. we expect and get windows, seats & suspension as a matter of course even on basic products like this - and there is no half moon cut-out on the base for the Dinky caravan any more which had always been a feature - is this confidence on Corgi's part that they didn't need to be compatible with Dinky any more? I just remember it being a pain because I owned a Dinky caravan!

The Oldsmobile Sheriff car was released in June 1962 and remained in the range until 1966, there are no listed variations and it is not a particularly hard to find model with values being reasonable for a Corgi of this age.
