The Corgi model of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 is the best-selling toy car ever produced and found a place in the hearts of children of all ages around the world.

Corgi Toys was founded in Swansea in 1956 and was always highly innovative, introducing many new gimmicks that children loved. Corgi became the first maker of zinc diecast toy cars to compete successfully with Dinky Toys and the Matchbox 1-75 series made by Lesney.

Author Mick Overton provides an informative introduction to Corgi Toys, illustrated with beautiful, previously unpublished photographs that show the most desirable variants worth collecting when spotted in an antique store or at a car-boot sale. He also covers the pitfalls of Ebay, fakes and customs.

This book is part of the Britain’s Heritage series, which provides definitive introductions to the riches of Britain’s past, and is the perfect way to get acquainted with Corgi Toys in all their variety.
