Corgi Toys 1956-73

216M Austin A40

120 GBP

I have been looking for one of these for a long time. Not just for the photos and stock but my dad had one. His was the Countryman version which had a fully opening rear, the window going up and the boot down. It was also red and the only ones I could find in the shops at the time were blue so my dad bought me that colour and, of course, it got repainted!

So this is totally original and the last M model Corgi made. It was by then not the most popular variant anyway and sales of #216M were pretty poor. Practically all the M models were red with a black roof.

This one has a working motor and beautifully clean and unmarked paintwork and silver paintwork too. Only the roof has a fault - a quite big scratch. Otherwise this is really really good and hard to find in good condition unless you plan to spend severalhundreds of pounds. I’m asking one which is still quite a lot but I think it is worth it. A boxed one recently sold for £250.
