Corgi Van­guard Austin Al­le­gro Se­ries 2 1500 Spe­cial £24.99

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

In case you didn’t know, Corgi’s Van­guard se­ries of­fers 1:43 scale au­to­mo­biles span­ning half a cen­tury of mo­tor­ing in Bri­tain. Each model car­ries de­tailed, au­then­tic liv­ery and comes com­plete with a minia­ture his­tory of the ve­hi­cle and its en­gine per­for­mance sta­tis­tics. Bet­ter still, they’re based on real cars. For in­stance, AJO 39R was orig­i­nally bought from BL dealer Heart­lands of Kidling­ton, Ox­ford­shire, on Fe­bru­ary 1, 1977 – and it’s still around to­day. Its minia­ture replica is pleas­ingly de­tailed and cap­tures the mag­nif­i­cence of a Rey­nard Metal­lic Austin Al­le­gro. Cor­rect stick­er­ing on the rear is a nice touch. With a match­ing (or clash­ing, de­pend­ing on your view­point) in­te­rior, it’s a real 1970s time­warp. MS www.lob­s­ter­ Use code ‘Hel­loLob­ster’ at check­out to get 10% off.
