This is a rather glamorous ambulance and mine is in quite good condition with what appears to be a full set of electrics - though I've never tested them.

This is a first in a number of ways, the first electrical Corgi, the first time anyone in the UK had seen an ambulance that wasn't a Bedford van you could walk around in and the first time Corgi used the piped light technology which led to the Trans-o-lite technique. Is this a bit like the hearse in Diamonds are Forever? There was also something like it in Ghostbusters.

From 1962 to 1966 the ambulance was cream over dark red, in 1966 the design was revised and it was recoloured to pale blue over white and metallic red over metallic silver. The later releases tend to get the better prices. The model was finally deleted in 1968.


Early release: Cream over dark red   Later release: Light blue over white
