Husky 12501; The Man From U.N.C.L.E Car; Husky Base, Blue

Husky, Rockets & Juniots

Year of Release: 1968

According to Corgi Toys our boys drove a 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88, which they didn't. A few of the third-and fourth-season episodes featured an "U.N.C.L.E. car", which was a modified Piranha Coupe, a plastic-bodied concept car based on the Chevrolet Corvair chassis built in limited numbers by the custom car designer Gene Winfield. The U.N.C.L.E. car had been lost after the end of the TV series, but it was found in Colorado during the early 1980s, and it was restored to original condition by Oscar-winning special effects artist Robert Short of California. Oddly enough Corgi Toys did make this car under their Husky Toys small scale brand.

This Corgi Small Scale was sourced in February 2021 from a private collection
