DescriptionGoldfinger - Corgi 261 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 (Corgi, 1965). Very Fine. Die-Cast Model Car in Original Packaging (5" X 1.75" X 1.5").
This original release die-cast Aston Martin 261 toy car was THE car that propelled Corgi into becoming the dominant force in the die-cast toy market in the late 60's and 70's. It was jam packed full of features unlike most other toy cars of this age (particularly Dinky cars), which had very few (if any) gimmicks or features. The 261 has an opening roof, ejector seat, bullet proof rear shield, extendable machine guns, and telescopic over-riders. Also included are an ejectable baddies (two painted and one unpainted), secret instructions, and an unused James Bond lapel sticker. All of the car's mechanisms are still in functioning order, and the body of the car shows only small surface scuffs and faint smudges. The box and display show creases, surface scuffs, and some minor tears and fold separations.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
