I was given this Corgi James Bond Aston Martin DB5 for Christmas 1965 by my Auntie Ivy. I think it cost 10 shillings! It started off my lifelong love of Astons and I vowed that one day I would get a real one. This finally happened, 53 years later, at Christmas 2018, when I became the proud owner of a V8 Vantage.
However, I equally cherish this lovely little model from 55 years ago. I still have the outer box, plinth, Secret Instructions envelope, unused 007 badge, Bond leaflets and two baddies (often lost!). I've also included my prized Corgi Model Club badge in the photograph.
