Bond 1967 Aston Martin Frankonia Gilbert Style Secret Agent Friction
The scarce Frankonia distributed model tin, friction drive Aston Martin
DB5 - owned by the one and only James Bond (first used by Sean Connery in
1964's Goldfinger and even seen in the 1st Roger Craig outing).
Obviously modeled after Gilbert's version - the car is eerily similar.
However, the figures in this set are hollow vinyl plastic.
Technically, there is no "James Bond" anywhere on the box - so clearly
unlicensed (boy, what you could get away with back in the day!).
Made in Japan. Most we've seen originated in Europe -we're not sure
if these ever saw a U.S. distribution. Model measures about 11"
long. Car features include:
- Secret Key Antenna
- Bullet-Proof Shield (Rises And Lowers)
- Retractable Machine Guns Fire Automatically
- Crash Bumpers Extend And Retract
- Secret Push Button Ejects Enemy
- Pull Out Secret Key Antenna To Lock Motor
- Powered By Friction Motor.

Appears unused with only minor storage age wear. It has no antenna - it's a rare piece but the handful we've seen boxed 1/2 of them don't have antennas. It's either a manufacturing change - or the antenna comes off very easily. Be that as it may, again, no antenna. Al functions work. Wheels have natural "dirty" look to them - a lot of these tires end up looking like that. Not sure how to clean them. Description meant to be thorough - it truly does appear unused.
