This is a truly handsome model. Opening everything in the best Corgi tradition, boot, bonnet & doors. Then pushing the envelope by adding take-off wheels and then larding on top the fascia detail provided by a nice sticker - and the door interior trims. Don't you just love the quarter lights? A proper Corgi. Through and through.

This version of the Mk1 Silver Shadow Corniche was in the range only very briefly. Probably holding the record for the shortest tenure. It was released in March 1970 and then the Whizzwheels event horizon took place and everything changed, mixing metaphors from Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy with Torchwood there. It was replaced just seven months later with the Whizzwheels car No.280. You will see it in silver & blue metallic or pearl white over grey. The silver & blue car gets a small premium.

Its a shame mine is a bit manky. The paint is scratched, the tyres are perished and the spare is missing, never mind, I like it - the Silver Lady's still there, that must be worth something.
