358 - Oldsmobile HQ Staff Car


£33.99

Based on Corgi’s long-running Oldsmobile 88, the HQ Staff Car was one of a number of military- themed vehicles introduced into the Corgi range at the beginning of 1965.An attempt to breathe new life into previously issued models, the initiative was only partly successful, possibly because Corgi chose mainly British vehicles, inexplicably giving them incongruous US Army liveries.

The HQ Staff Car was the exception and is now regarded as one of the most collectible of all Corgi Oldsmobile 88s – due to its low sales at the time and therefore relative scarcity today. Despite being based on an early Corgi tooling (from 1962), it is a fine model in its own right and features a full complement of passengers – a driver and three other figures.

The old dreams come back

It was one of the best ideas ever to reissue the legendary Corgi models of the golden era of Corgi Toys in the 1960ies. Unfortunately many of these models were not available in Austria in that years ad if they were extremely expensive for a schoolboy.
The staff car is one of the most impressive models of their military range. Now they are available for all collectors everywhere who wants them, and the price is perfect, too.
Thank you for your efforts.
