This is the nearest i could find by ebbro





called a bluebird sss 510 in japan (1967) the rear quarter does not have the slope that the 70s import has.

Looks good to me I have not seen this one before It did not come up on Google

Corgi Vanguard are supposed to be bringing one out, but I can't find anything about it or even when it is due, probably be a bit like Oxford who have not yet got around to releasing, maybe even tooling models due last year.

Remember the title and it says Corgi toys, so pre 1983 then. Jag mk10.



Scroll down the link to find some ready to race mk10. And ask why some people would do that

Thanks for showing this one Richards, It even has a mechanical winch instead of a powered one. Nice.

Time to revive this topic a bit.............


not seen too often on the Dutch roads, a mechanic who was to fix our heating system in my office, parked his "rescue" car outside the building. Of course I immediately recognized this as an AMC pacer. Who could miss it
