233 Heinkel Trojan 'Economy Car'

Better known to many of us as a 'Bubble Car'! This was issued in January 1962 and, strangely, was one of Corgi's longest-lasting models remaining unchanged apart from different types of wheel, through to the 1970s.

It was produced in 5 main colours:

  • red
  • pale lilac
  • deep lilac
  • orange
  • metallic dark blue

It started with fixed smooth wheels and can be found with fixed, shaped wheels, free-spinning wheels and cast wheels. So far I am only aware of cast wheel being fitted to the orange edition and I am not sure which colours had free-spinning wheels as they are quite scarce.
