Jaguar E-Type Open top or Soft top or Rag top or Convertible. Just depends on where you are from I guess.



This car has a nicely detailed interior too.

And last but not least, Morris Minor Van Royal Mail.

This model also has the Postal cancellation Stamp only on this door. Probably as they only stamp a letter once, over the stamp to cancel it.


I did not get a picture of the other side.

that's a tidy collection.

now the question begs... Are Vanguards made by Lledo or Corgi???

Re: Vanguards only. 9 years, 9 months ago #39

Platinum Boarder
Vanguards were originally Lledo then Corgi bought Lledo now they're Corgi Vanguards!

Re: Vanguards only. 9 years, 9 months ago #40

Platinum Boarder
All the ones I have are made by Lledo, that is why I wanted a Vanguard section of its own not under Corgi.

Platinum Boarder
Thanks Amarsden, that settles that, they could go to either maker then, like Dinky, having been owned by more than one company.

And Corgi Vanguards is now a Hornby Product!

Re: Vanguards only. 9 years, 9 months ago #43

Platinum Boarder
how ironic... as Hornby, Mecanno and Dinky were together too once upon a time.

I have the Horby part on one of my Landies

Re: Vanguards only. 9 years, 9 months ago #44

Platinum Boarder
Yes, I knew about Hornby buying Corgi. That was early last year, I think.

I agree Jim, while I can recognise the cars as the Australian motor industry was fairly varied, I am sure there are people not familiar with some of these cars. Doesn't take much to type a short description
