Hello all,

We located some older models in a closet over at DHS and we are making them available to you! You need to poke around on the website to find them - but take a look at what is available!

Thanks!

Chuck

Hello All;
Long time lurker here, enjoying the posts.
Question, speaking of the older Mack Corgi Majors,
does anyone know why the headlights were reversed? Was it a licensing thing with Mack?
Just curious, thank you. Pete.

kta525,

I never realized that front lights were the wrong side on the Corgi Toys Mack model.
I did some search on the web:





I couldn't find any Mack with large lights on the radiator side, except for some Australian units having 4 identical front lights:



Why was that inverted on the Corgi model: no idea.

I hope it helps.
Guy

I have often wondered that myself. Another one is the Corgi Chicago Fire Department B Model Mack tow truck. I have used a few of these for other FD trucks, and the steering wheel is on the right side! d'oh!
