THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.

I understood the Saint Volvo, he drove it in every episode, the James Bond Aston was in the movie (briefly), the Avengers cars, the Batmobile - we knew where they came from - but Napoleon and Illya never made a feature of their cars and as I remember they always worked deep under cover - a car with UNCLE in two foot high letters across the bonnet was just so not their style. The Waverley ring that came with it was right out of the show - but where did this five-year old Oldsmobile come from?

I was bought one by the old lady who lived next door for a Christmas present (I still have it - but it's very rough) and I remember being soundly disappointed it had no suspension. Having said all that the model has become a classic which always fetches very high prices. The car was made from 1966 to 1969 and is available in metallic blue and in off-white, the off white one is really very valuable indeed.
