THE CORGI 267 HISTORY:- The Film and TV Series cars were released in 1965 with “The Saint Volvo” being the first followed by James Bond Aston Martin DB5. The corgi 267 Batmobile was released in 1966 with “The man from U.N.C.L.E series. The Corgi 267 Batmobile actually sold some 5 million cars.
The Corgi 267 Batmobile car had varying versions including a true Matt Black, a Gloss Black, and the rare Red Solid Wheels and Whizz sets. Corgi also produced varying gift packs that included the Batmobile, Batboat, and Batcopter. Like all Corgi Die Cast vehicles their value increased after the Corgi factory burnt down IN 1969 and manufacturers stopped producing cars with the operational aspects in metal.
These features included:
- Push button chain cutter on bonnet
- Detailed dash and cockpit including siren and satellite bat phone
- Finger wheel operational Rocket launcher on rear boot - with missiles (most kids fired matchsticks)
- Flame thrower exhaust that moves with rear wheel motion (not on vehicles fitted with Tow bar)
- Removable Batman and Robin Figurines
- Aerial on boot
- # varying Wheel versions: Red Bat-Wing hub, 8 spoke, and solid red wheels and Wide Whizz wheels
- Secret Sealed Envelope with Operation instructions, missiles and Corgi adhesive decal
The Corgi 267 Batmobile did originally retail for approx. $4 back in the late 1960's and quickly became a sought after Collectors model due to its many unique operational features. These collector cars are getting rarer nowadays and originals that are not restored can fetch anywhere from $600 to $3000. In 2016 they will be 50 years of age and well sought again.
