That 165 with the saw head was the coolest thing I had ever seen when I was a nipper! (circa 1970).

Are those cabbed 165s Corgis or Matchbox?

The cabbed 165s are Matchbox .They are very good but the tyres are a nightmare ,if you are lucky enough to find a tractor with tyres its great .If not you can fit corgi wheels .

Yes Barry ,they are Cori MF 65s but painted in the correct colours instead of red/cream .

I like them better in the proper colours .

They look great, think i need educating on the vintage Dinky & Corgi models as i always thought they were not up to much, Britains is best and all that until the new UH/Siku era of course  ;)

I think there is a lot of potential with the older corgi and dinky stuff .

They can be converted the same as anything else .

Just on a smaller scale .

Nice work Steve,

I?m specialized for restoration of Britains, so I have two older Corgis, without any work on it. They need parts and new colour.

Are you interested? Than we can exchange with a Britains Model of your collection, for restoration by myself.

The Corgis are a MF 165 and a MF 65 with shovel.

Would you have some pics, let me know.

I've got a mint Matchbox 165 and the tyres are literally falling off the rims - the centres have shrunk or the tyres have stretched  :(
