This is Corgi's last gasp under the old Mettoy brand. By 1983 it was really all over and the company was into damage limitation mode. I've managed to find examples of most of these cars and trucks and in some other cases found run-on models from successors to the Corgi brand where the model was kept in production.

This mostly applies to the trucks, which with the exception of the 'Load Lugger' appear to be in 1:72 scale and classified in my database as Corgi Juniors. I've presented near matches in some cases to give an idea of what was produced. No doubt as the years go by and more diecasts flow through the Little Wheels Global Headquarters I will fill in more gaps.
