Chevrolet Fire Chief (482)


Corgi’s second casting of the Chevrolet Impala from the mid-60s gave rise to a taxi (Corgi 480), a police car (Corgi 481) and this striking Chevrolet Fire Chief (Corgi 482) resplendent in a red and white livery. Both the fire and police versions included driver and passenger figures – whereas the taxi had just a driver. With a blue emergency light as opposed to the police car’s red light, the Fire Chief Car was given ‘Fire Dept’ door stickers, with ‘Fire Chief ’ in bold white lettering across the bonnet.

The most noticeable aspect of Corgi’s second Impala casting was its split die-cast body. This allowed the two halves to be painted separately which avoided errors and wastage.The Chevrolet Fire Chief’s car was in the Corgi range from 1965 to 1969.

Chevrolet Fire Chief

Like all the previous replicas I have acquired from the Corgi Model Club this one is also a very fine reproduction. It, like the others is a faithful reproduction of the one I had as a young lad eons ago. It is like holding my past happy memories in the palm of my hand. Beautiful bright paint and very nice details. Thank you for making it and I look forward to the Chevrolet Police Car. Here it sits in my Curio with a few others, my Ambulance sits with numerous Corgi Fire Trucks and the Fire Chief will join later.

Love the Vintage Corgi vehicles.

Nice little model of a Fire Department Chiefs Car. Detail is nice. If I were to make one change, it would be the fire sticker on the door. A clear decal would look much better. Overall a nice model for my collection.
