482 - Chevrolet Fire Chief


Corgi’s second casting of the Chevrolet Impala from the mid-60s gave rise to a taxi (Corgi 480), a police car (Corgi 481) and this striking Chevrolet Fire Chief (Corgi 482) resplendent in a red and white livery. Both the fire and police versions included driver and passenger figures – whereas the taxi had just a driver. With a blue emergency light as opposed to the police car’s red light, the Fire Chief Car was given ‘Fire Dept’ door stickers, with ‘Fire Chief ’ in bold white lettering across the bonnet.

The most noticeable aspect of Corgi’s second Impala casting was its split die-cast body. This allowed the two halves to be painted separately which avoided errors and wastage.The Chevrolet Fire Chief’s car was in the Corgi range from 1965 to 1969.

Hornby-Corgi 482 - Chevrolet Fire Chief

One of a few rare car models in 1/50 scale, nicely reproduced by Hornby.

Another Impala Winner

I have a thing for the '59 Impala and, especially, for Corgi's models of it. Having already bought and loved the No 480 Taxicab replica, this one was a must-have too. And it's another cracker which replicates the 1960s original really well. The wait for No 481 Police Patrol Car version starts here.
