237 - Oldsmobile "Sheriff" Car


£27.99

Based on 1961’s Oldsmobile Super 88, this classic American police car model was released in 1962. Corgi produced around 615,000 – an indication of how influential US cop shows and movies were at the time. Given ‘Glidamatic’ suspension and a roof-mounted emergency light, it was perfect for car chases across the living room floor – no doubt receiving chips to its paintwork as it collided with skirting boards and rammed into the hapless getaway car model!

With its iconic black and white livery and silver foil ‘County Sheriff’ roundels on the doors, it stayed in the Corgi range until 1966. Corgi went on to produce two further Oldsmobile Super 88 models – a rather sedate family saloon (Corgi 235), then in 1966, the classic feature-laden Man from U.N.C.L.E.‘Thrush-Buster’ (Corgi 497).
