The first Corgi 'Classic' to be branded as such was the Ford Model T. I think Corgi were after Matchbox's lunch here as by now the Models of Yesteryear range was well established and had created its own market niche - a compromise between modelling accuracy and a toy robust enough to play with without all those fine detaily bits snapping off.  They may however have been a bit pricey at 8/11d. I'm sure they were significantly dearer than the Matchbox MOY range.

There are three Ford Model Ts in the 1964 Classics releases and each gets its own model number .The black open car is 9011 and has a driver and passenger figure in the front, the same car in yellow with the hood down and the same two figures is 9012 and in blue, with the hood up it is 9013. The blue car was supplied with a driver figure cranking the engine.

The trio of Fords stayed in production until 1969. There are no listed variations and as with all the early Corgi Classics, values are low.

As you can see this one has lost its windscreen and the parts suppliers I can find don't do screens for Classics sadly as this one is worth restoring.
