At first glance these both look like the Corgi Juniors packaged 1001 James Bond Aston Martin DB6 however the first diecast issued in 1968 is technically the 3rd and in my opinion the superior variant of the Husky Bond DB6 with metal wheels and rubber tyres & matt silver coachwork, this example being made for the American market, the baseplate featuring a Corgi Juniors sticker covering the husky branding. The second diecast issued in 1970 featured metalic silver coachwork, a new casting for the baseplate featuring Corgi Juniors branding and the less aesthetically pleasing Whizzwheels. Not surprising the first diecast which I class as a transitional model for the Husky/Corgi Juniors change over is the rarer version which took this collector many years to source  ajb007/martini

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

They look really nice, The 1001 with metal wheels and rubber tyres is still on my list of items to get. I do have the whizzwheels carded version but with non chromed wheels.
Thanks for sharing the pic  ajb007/martini

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

AWESOME COLLECTION!!! Always great to see these items!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Nice Buddy, good to see you got the 68 version at last, they appear to be reaching hen's teeth levels of rarity.

Defo one of my favorites that also made an equally rare appearance in the Husky Crime Busters set

You got one at last!!  your other extra is different to mine as yours has the chrome on the wheels where mine is black....

I'll dig out a photo of the black wheels

Well once I would have said the Husky/Corgi Juniors 1001 but realistically I guess it has to be the carded 1010 OHMSS VW Beetle. I remember seeing one at the Lea Valley collectors fair back in 1984 for I think 60 Quid but did not know what the hell it was & passed on it...Dohhh!  ajb007/frown

Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Boy, those bring back memories.  I remember having the older Corgi Jr and lost it in the garden.  My mother got me the new version and I was really disappointed with the plastic and wheels.  It didn't go anywhere near as fast down that plastic loop the loop track I had screwed to the edge of the dining room table.
