    Description

    Goldfinger - Corgi 261 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 (Corgi, 1965). Die-Cast Model Car in Original Packaging (5" X 1.75" X 1.5").
    This original release die-cast Aston Martin toy car from the James Bond thriller Goldfinger was released in October 1965 and was an outright smash hit with children of the day. The 261 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 and was a miniature work of engineering genius. Most die-cast cars of this age (particularly Dinky cars) had very few (if any) gimmicks or features. The 261 had an opening roof, ejector seat, bullet proof rear shield and telescopic overriders. Factor in the ejectable baddie (this car actually comes with two extra henchmen for triple the ejectable fun), the accessory pack and 2 stage box and this was the only toy to have for Christmas 1965. This particular car shows little wear, save for a few scratches, while its display card shows creases, surface scuffs, and fold wear with a couple of separations. The box has similar issues with minor staining. Very Fine-.
