This is one of the crown jewels of my collection. This vintage Aston Martin D.B. 5 was produced by Corgi in 1965 and is based on the car driven by Sean Connery in the James Bond classic, Goldfinger. The box art in this small little package packs a lot of punch, and looks great on display.
The diecast car is 1:43 scale, larger than your standard Hot Wheels or Matchbox car, and sits on this awesome cardboard insert which has cut outs for the wheels to prevent the car from rolling around in the box.
The back side of the insert shows what can happen if you get on Bond’s bad side.
The instructions are packaged in a sealed 007 envelope that is stored in a compartment beneath the car in the cardboard insert.
The car itself is a site to behold, but be careful what button you push! There are three spring-activated switches that operate the front machine guns, the ejector seat, and the bullet shield in the back. Sadly, my car lost the passenger somewhere down the road.
