Corgi Model Club 325 Ford Mustang Fastback 2+2 Competition Model
The Corgi Model Club represents a carefully curated cross-section of some of the greatest die-cast models ever to come originally out of Corgi's famous Swansea factory.
Based on the slightly earlier 'non-competition' Corgi Ford Mustang, number 320, which was launched in April 1965, this new motor racing version was in the shops just in time for Christmas. Both models were given a host of features, such as opening doors and tilting seats, all very innovative for the time. With a sleek white body and twin red bonnet stripes, this new racing model sensibly omitted the previous version's small plastic corgi dog on the parcel shelf. Eagle-eyed enthusiasts will also have noted that the tiny AA badge on the rear of the older model was deleted for this new version, a laudable attention to detail that goes a long way to explaining Corgi’s enduring popularity.
