Summary

Summary

Corgi Juniors and Husky Models brings together the story of these small-scale model cars and other toys into one book for the first time. Once the number 3 brand in many markets, they competed head-to-head with Mattel's Hot Wheels cars and Lesney's Matchbox Series. This widely collected line of diecast toy cars and trucks are examined in every detail. Over 500 full color photos and well-researched text presents the entire history of these cars, from the introduction of Husky Models in 1964, to the Corgi Classics of today. Here are Corgi Juniors, Corgi Rockets, Husky Toys, Whizzwheels Conversions and many more. The text includes never before published information on prototype, pre-production, and promotional models. An extensive section of variation listings, and details on every known model. The alphabetical cross-reference section provides readers with easy access to model numbers and current values.
