James Bond Ford Mustang Mach 1

Alternative Name: Corgi Diamonds Are Forever Ford Mustang Mach 1

This model depicted the car used by Sean Connery as James Bond and Jill St. John as Bond Girl Tiffany Case in the 1971 film Diamonds Are Forever.

History

The model was not originally planned as a Bond tie-in, Corgi had planned to issue it as a standard model. However, when they found that the same car was being used in the film, they revised the packaging and promotional material accordingly. This likely explains why the model features the black plastic insert with hood scoops while the car in the film has a red body-color hood with no hood scoops. After it was withdrawn from the range, the tooling was modified to eliminate the plastic hood insert and reused for the 329 Ford Mustang Rally model.

Features

The model featured opening doors, tilting seats, tinted windows, suspension and WhizzWheels with chrome hubcap inserts.
