The greatest police car of all time?
Beautiful MKII Jaguar from the swinging 60s!
There was a time when the only form of transport a British policeman could rely on was his own size nines! Or, if he was lucky, a rickety old bicycle, no doubt with a squeaky wheel, wonky forks and rattling mudguards.
“Calling all cars, calling all cars…”
Well, we’ve come a long way since those pre-War days of Bobbies on the beat. From the 1940s onwards, police cars became a common sight on our roads. When the first motorways were opened from the late 1950s police cars became a vital part of the crime-fighting ‘kit’.
Pandas, Z-cars, jam sandwiches – the wonderful and colourful names we’ve given our police cars over the years reflects the amazing range of vehicles used by the boys in blue. From humble Minis and Ford Anglias to glamorous MGBs and super-smooth Sierras, you name it, the British police have driven it. And whether they’re out on a friendly local patrol or flashing by in a high-speed pursuit, ‘blues and twos’ blaring away, it’s always a reassuring sight to see the police keeping our streets safe and sound.
The best police car ever?In the 1960s, ask any policeman the car he dreamed of driving most and the Mk2 Jaguar would top the list. It had everything – ‘grace, pace and space’, in the words of Jaguar boss, Sir William Lyons. Easy on the eye too.
That’s why we’ve chosen a Mk2 for this incredible ‘Police Cars’ introductory offer. It has been skilfully replicated in die-cast metal at 1:43 scale and looks amazing, especially mounted on its plinth and displayed next to its stylish collector’s box. Worth £14.99, it is yours for just £1.99 (+ FREE p&p). It’s historically accurate too, bearing the livery of the same Jags used by Bedfordshire Police to track down the notorious Great Train Robbers of 1963 – as you’ll see in the 4-page colour booklet that accompanies this model. Order now and you will also receive a FREE mystery gift.
That’s not all. Reply today and you’ll be placed on our priority delivery service. Each month you’ll receive the latest model in our ‘Best of British Police Cars’ collection. Plus, in your next three deliveries, you’ll receive some exclusive FREE gifts. Read on to find out more…
More great police car models, more FREE giftsWith the superb Mk2 Jaguar in your hands, it’s certain you’ll want to see the next historic police car we have created for you – especially as it’s the magnificent Austin J2 Van. This very vehicle was used by the SPG branch of the Metropolitan Police to transport the notorious Ronnie and Reggie Kray to the Old Bailey in 1968, so ending the twins’ dreaded reign of terror. Worth £14.99, it’s yours for just £7.99, plus £4.99 p&p. You’ll also receive along with your model, plinth, box and 4-page colour booklet, FREE of charge, two gifts worth almost £17: a Discount Voucher saving you £7 and a fascinating ‘On the Beat’ DVD worth £9.99.
Just four weeks later you will then be sent one of the most iconic police cars of all time: the Ford Anglia. Resplendent in classic duck egg blue and white ‘panda’ livery, the Anglia was also the ‘star’ of long-running 1960s-set police drama, ‘Heartbeat’. The model, along with plinth, box and 4-page booklet is a steal at just £14.99 (+ £3.49 p&p) – especially as it comes with a superb ‘British Police Cars of the 1950s and 60s’ fully-illustrated book. It’s worth £8.99, but for you it’s FREE!
Incredible diecast replicas and incredible valueNo police car collection is complete without a Morris Minor 1000 Van and our stunning model is a beauty, handsomely-presented in the deep blue livery of West Riding Constabulary’s Dog Patrol unit. It’s just £14.99 (+ £3.49 p&p) and that includes your model, plinth, box and 4-page colour booklet. Not that you’d need any extra incentive, but your ‘Moggie’ will also be sent to you with THREE FREE GIFTS: an early 20th century replica police whistle and poster worth £4.99, plus a storage box for you to keep your growing collection of 4-page colour booklets safe and at hand.
