Corgi 344 - Ferrari Dino Sport 1969-1972


Although this had already been featured in the catalogues as a “take-off-wheel” model, this never materialized and due to pressures from the competition “free-running” models, Corgi worked hard to keep up. The Dino, therefore was changed over at the last minute and became the first Whizzwheels model to appear in the Corgi range. The early Whizzwheels had the ‘Red Spot” hub centers.

The Ferrari Dino have black axle wire to the wheels.
