Corgi Model Club 258 - The "Saint's" Car Volvo P.1800 - 2nd Edition Paramount Pictures License

The Corgi Model Club represents a carefully curated cross-section of some of the greatest die-cast models ever to come out of Corgi's famous Swansea factory.

The "Saint's Car Volvo P1800 is now under license with Paramount Pictures and this new model has the fully licensed Saint logo on the bonnet with a cream coloured background. This new re-issue of this model also has the Paramount licensing line on the packaging.

Renowned for being Corgi’s first licensed product, this popular model was created to tie in with "The Saint"’ TV show featuring future James Bond, Roger Moore. The P.1800 model had been first issued by Corgi in 1961, as number 228. Originally available in either red, beige or salmon pink, it was deleted in 1965 to make way for this new version.

With white paintwork to match the car seen on TV, a detailed red interior, the iconic "Saint" logo on the bonnet and a miniature Simon Templar at the wheel, it was an instant success. Nearly 1,160,000 were sold before it was deleted from the range in 1970. Later versions differed with a red "Saint" bonnet sticker.

Size: Length 92mm, Width:36mm, Height 28mm. Scale 1:46.
