TOPIC: The plated ones

The plated ones 4 years, 3 months ago #1

Gold Boarder
Hello,


until today, I thought to be aware of the range of gold and silver plated cars, Corgi once produced - (maybe except the later ones like the Land Rover re-issue etc.)


Today I became aware of the Massey Ferguson 165 tractor (#66) as well to exist in gold.


Does anyone have the complete set of all ever produced plated ones?


Or can give a complete listing?


Best regards


Wolfgang

I think the great book of corgi lists them, but I am not sure.

Someone here in the forum focused on these ones and has them all?

Hi Wolfgang

You do not say what years the models you are talking about are up to ?
or do you mean from 1956 -- 2016


The GBOC only goes up to 2010

My knowledge is limited to what is described in the first issue of the GBOC.


So I lost the overview as far it concerns the aera after 1983...


I am in particular interested to get more details regarding this one:


year of issue ?


numbers produced ?


value guess ?

There have been many 'Plated' models from the Corgi Toys range. Corgi were always looking at ways to market their models. They had plated a series of models for a retail store in the UK (discussed somewhere here on Planet Diecast) under the 'TROPHY' name. These were late 1950's models and only so many models were chosen for this treatment.


The Tractor you show is not one of them, but may have been for the Massey Ferguson company to celebrate so many Years of production, several Plated Corgi models were used for promotion purposes and would have been done to current models in the range, so the Plated Tractor dates from when it was in the pocket catalogue.


Similar Plated models exist of...


The Yellow Submarine.


The Citroen 2 CV.


The BMW M1.


The Aston Martin DB5.


The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow.


...and many more, all from different periods of Corgi production.

I cannot locate the illustrated Massey in any auction archive


Can it be a unique piece???

Re: The plated ones 4 years, 3 months ago #9

Yes it will be pretty unique made for the tractor manufacturers big wigs plus here's one that is not  in the books bit pricey though...

Wouldn't surprise me if this was something ordered by MF management for gifts for Export customers/awards for staff.

Found this one on auction - but it's not a Corgi, is it?
