As the 1960s morphed into the 1970s, Corgi continued to introduce innovative features, most notably on a selection of models featuring a removable chassis. The Italian Ghia 5000 Mangusta with a De Tomaso chassis was an ideal subject – Ghia famous for their streamlined bodies and De Tomaso for their engine and chassis combinations.

Launched into the Corgi range in 1969 with a stylish two-tone body, gold stripes on the bonnet and some beautifully detailed ‘magnesium’ style wheels, it certainly looked the part! In 1970, renumbered 203, it was revamped with Whizzwheels – no longer with a detachable chassis and in green paintwork – although the two-tone livery still appeared on the box illustration.
