In 1999 the Lledo Company went into
Recievership and the Vanguards (as well as
the Days Gone Range) were bought by Corgi. They have
decided to keep the Vanguards
name and have started to release more Anglia Van Models.
These have been "upgraded" to
include jewelled headlights and fine metal wiper blades.
Long may they keep producing them.
