Interesting, I have never seen anything like this, not with a Corgi toy on top.

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #3

Platinum Boarder
so that's why my yellow transit has no box...

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #4

Platinum Boarder
the toy fits in the box , there is no room for the toohpaste that must have been in another box!

That is a great find LUFF,

is it Corgi juniors size? like the orange Matchbox one with the wooden crates

Nice artwork on the box too, you'd assumee that fast car was in it, and then find a Transit.

But that would not dissapoint me, for I like the older Transit versions

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #6

Platinum Boarder
yes it is corgi junior the matchbox transit







is a MK1 and the corgi is a MK2

Hey just saw this, thought you might be interested to know we found another Signal Promotional model while cataloguing Corgi - a White Fiat X1-9...

great adam21k at least we know that it is not a one off and other models were used thanks.

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #9

Platinum Boarder
wow, my cataloging is incredibly out of date. I might get round to it.


 


Anyhoo, here's a pic of a towie which they may have produced later to make the Transit more exciting.

it could be, they both seem to be from the swansea era.

There were two casting variations on this one too, not sure which is the oldest though.

The one in the toothpaste box is the one on the right of the picture of the two yellow transits

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #13

Platinum Boarder
The one I have has no mention of being a Corgi on the black plastic base apart from the wording Ford Transit, Made in Great Britain.

Re: corgi promotion 8 years, 7 months ago #14

Platinum Boarder
This is the base of my transit






i was thinking what do i have with no name on the base !

this we know is a corgi cub but is a toy for "AVON"  the last picture show's the range of toys in the centre is a ford transit .




















could this be the answer ?

on top of the garage. ford sierra police car,land rover ,land rover breakdown.

in front of garage green ?, ford transit,london d/d bus,blue sierra, white?.

It may very well be a later one, I have lots of Corgi with the name and without, from what I have been told the later one's didn't have their name cast.


As in the case of these two Land Rovers, both identical one with the corgi name and one without.
