Corgi Diecast Cars, Trucks and Vans
Established back in 1956, Corgi diecast cars, trucks and vans soon became a collector’s’ favourite. Made unique by the plastic windows that weren’t included in other toy cars being manufactured at the time, the original items produced by the company are often now worth a significant amount.
Some of the most valuable, and collectible, items in the Corgi diecast collection include the vehicles that were modelled after famous and iconic cars from over the years. Vehicles like the James Bond Aston Martin DB5, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and other nostalgic creations are eternally popular and hunted by collectors.
In this range you’ll find a huge selection of vehicles, from classic cars to newer models alongside well known and rarer commercial vehicles, including trucks and vans. There’s an enormous variety of products available on the market, ensuring that you’ll find something to fit your personal tastes.
Whilst the vintage and retro vehicles are the most popular with many collectors, the newer ranges are also much sought after. The company established a new headquarters in the 1990s and enjoyed an exciting resurgence in popularity with designs inspired by vehicles like Mr. Bean’s Mini, the iconic Jaguar car driven by Inspector Morse and even Cadbury’s chocolate vans, amongst many others.
Some top tips for collectors who are looking for a great addition to their selection of Corgi vehicles include carefully reading descriptions to check that they are definitely original items and aren’t replicas. It’s also important to get Corgi cars, trucks and vans that are in the best possible condition, with limited damage. Ideally, although they can be hard to find, the perfect vehicle will be unused and still in its original packaging.
If you find the vehicle that you’re looking for, but it doesn’t have the packaging, be sure that it is packaged safely for posting, and consider investing in a display case so that your new investment is kept in tip top condition.
