Corgi Model Club 327 - MGB GT
The Corgi Model Club represents a carefully curated cross-section of some of the greatest die-cast models ever to come originally out of Corgi's famous Swansea factory.
A popular marque in both the UK and the USA during the 1960s and 70s, the Corgi range featured surprisingly few MGs. This MGB GT, produced between 1967 and 1969, is a notable exception. With doors and a tailgate that opens to reveal a detailed interior with folding seats, the icing on the cake was a miniature suitcase in the boot â€“ an item that is frequently missing from original examples.
Whereas the suitcase came in either brown or black, the car itself was only available in red with a pale blue interior. It was given wire wheels â€“ a classic and desirable feature on actual MGs â€“ yellow jewelled headlights, chrome front and rear bumpers and an accurately replicated MGB GT badge on the tailgate.
The tooling was later utilised for Corgi 345 â€“ a 6-cylinder MGC, which explains that model's additional bonnet bulge!
