This is one of the true classics of American cars in 1963, another fine piece of judgement on the range builders at Corgi to choose this one - not only a fantastic choice of car but - retracting headlamps, vacuum plated plastic detailing and golf clubs visible in the back! Look closely at those clubs - they must be for a midget! However when I met the real car at the Classic Car Show (NEC, 2006) I made it my business to find out if you really could fit a set of clubs in there - you can. The back does not open and that 'boot' area is one big open void inside the car, it is just empty behind the seats.

Corgi released the Corvette Stingray in 1963 keeping it in the range in this form until 1967. There was a stock-car re-release of this casting under a new model number in yellow which was re-released again in metallic blue with Whizzwheels.

You will find the Corvette in copper, metallic silver and metallic red, the wheels can be spun hubs or wires. Values are always high but the copper coloured car is the one to look for.

One of Chris Davidson's mint in box models is shown too to get a view of the box and to see the model in its original state.
