This looks like Corgi really trying, a bit late in the day, but really trying to get back to their glory days with a well-modelled US car having some nice opening features. It was an interesting departure though for them to bring out retro fifties models, this being one of them. It is very late in the day though as the whole company went bang shortly after. Nice opening boot and bonnet features with that good old US V8 on show in the front

The 1957 Ford Thunderbird was first released in 1980 as the Vega$, Dan Tanna car, it came out next in white with the black hood in January 1982. It was re-released the following year with an orange hood as No.810.

Under post Mettoy ownerships it returned with Marylyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, the last release I have found is the lipstick pink car (810) below which came out in 2000
