Vintage Toys: The Saint's Volvo 1800 by Corgi
The Saint was a huge ratings puller on television in the 1960s when Roger Moore was at the helm of the series and obviously a few spin-offs of memorabilia such as books and toys were the order of the day.
One such toy was a Corgi replica of Simon Templar's Volvo 1800 from 1966, complete with Simon Templar figure behind the wheel and a recreation of The Saint logo on the hood.
This version is obviously a little battered but still in reasonable condition for 47 years old!
For more information on The Saint and his car check out thesaint.org
A new version of The Saint is currently been made in The States featuring Adam Rayner in the title role as well as Eliza Dushku! Should be interesting!
