Here's an ad from TV CENTURY 21 #9, way back in 1965,
that captures the mood of the era perfectly. I happen to have the
SAINT's VOLVO, but I quite fancy the ice cream van, a version
of which is still available today, although not made by CORGI.
Interestingly, the Saint's car was Corgi's first piece of character
merchandise, created by placing a figure of SIMON TEMPLAR
in an existing Volvo P1800 model and sticking a matchstick-
man decal on the bonnet.
Another fascinating glimpse into the past in a future post -
don't miss it! And below is the cover to the actual issue.
Now, having whetted your appetite, don't miss our up-
