Hi Knowledge   Dublin6 is right they never came in that kind of box, the first 10 came in the green window box or if the lotus with the green stripe has made in china on the base that was a rerun and came in a  straw coloured window box . It also came in a set as did the red with 29 on the side .

In their early days Corgi never produced the mk1 Cortina, only came out as a Corgi Classics.

Hi Knowledge The problem with the early boxes (green window ) was that the clear plastic was not UV stable and turned yellow and very brittle.

MK1 Cortina first issued in 1989
