OK, so we first got vacuum plated plastic detailing on the Corvette Stingray and here it comes again, this time with opening everything - AND - a decal for dashboard detail and a real rear view mirror, tipping seats, proper interior detail and door liners, plated detailed engine and they even remembered jewelled lights.

The only mistake - and it was a big one - was using the plastic bumpers to provide suspension, that's why these always sit so low, it just was not resilient enough. Some of Corgi's best, the MGB, Mustang, Imp, Rambler Marlin - they all suffer with suspension sag for the same reason. This is still one of Corgi's finest that sold in hundreds of thousands - and there was only ever about seven of the real car made!

1. Opening Doors

2. Folding Seats

3. Plated Radiator & Bumpers

4. Headlamp Reflectors

5. Opening Bonnet

6. Opening Boot

7 Spring Suspension

8. Driving Mirror

9. Corgi Dog

The Ghia L 6.4 was added to the Corgi range in 1963 and remained in production to 1969. It can be found in six different finishes according to my sources, although I have not seen all of them. Colours are: metallic blue and white, metallic green, metallic gold, metallic blue, metallic copper and metallic lime-gold. They are of similar value with the metallic blue and the metallic lime-gold being the best priced versions.

The list on the right contains the features Corgi claimed for this ground-breaking model
