Keith Belcher ecalls that "in August 1968 Corgi Toys, owned by Mettoy Playcraft Ltd, ran a competion aimed at selling more of their Corgi Toys (they were the ones with windows) to young children. The prize was "a new MGB GT for your Dad". It is not known who won the MGB GT but I bet it sold thousands of toy cars. The toy MGB GT was priced at 6/6d (or 32.5p in today's money)!
