Back again for another casting contemporary to when the car was new. This one is something of a cultural icon, the Aston Martin DB5, as driven by James Bond in Goldfinger. This is a period ~1:43 casting by Corgi, dating to 1965, and there’s no mistaking it for anything else:

Not so much technical detail on the base, but it hints at things to come:

A very nice model, with some surprises:

The fun part of this casting is the moving parts. The shield, sliding roof, working ejector seat, figures, front rams - just like the real thing. Driving in this thing would require one of Bond’s dapper outfits, and maybe no music, as you try to evade the baddies. Play value by the ton:
