Corgi Model Club 358 - Oldsmobile 88 H Q Staff Car with 4 Figures

$52.00 

MPN: CM1246358

Based on Corgi's long-running Oldsmobile 88, the HQ Staff Car was one of a number of military themed vehicles introduced into the Corgi range at the beginning of 1965.

An attempt to breathe new life into previously issued models, the initiative was only partly successful, possibly because Corgi chose mainly British vehicles, inexplicably giving them incongruous US Army liveries.

The HQ Staff Car was the exception and is now regarded as one of the most collectible of all Corgi Oldsmobile 88s due to its low sales at the time and therefore relative scarcity today. Despite being based on an early Corgi tooling (from 1962), it is a fine model in its own right and features a full complement of passengers – a driver and three other figures.

Now brought exclusively and directly to you, thanks to our unique relationship with Corgi's owner - the illustrious British toymaker, Hornby Hobbies plc, each model includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
