This model is the Corgi 395-A-1 Fire Bug in orange.

There are no opening parts on this model. The front hood has a paper label (yellow flames outlined in orange on a red background). On the left side, below the body line, is another paper label with "Fire Bug" in red lettering on a yellow background. Behind the seats is a chrome roll bar which has two cast spotlights and two "flashing" beacons with blue lenses.

The interior of the Buggy has black seats and floor at the front with a gold right hand side steering wheel and an open orange trunk. The glazing is a clear unframed windscreen with very slight amber tint.

The wheels of the Beach Buggy are "Whizzwheels" - Hollow black wheels with 8-spoke chrome hub inserts — the back wheels are slightly larger than the front wheels.

The base plate of the Fire Bug is chrome metal and is marked with CORGI TOYS followed by "Whizzwheels" at the centre, G.P. Beach Buggy at the centre bottom and "PAT APP 3396/69" on top of the front right wheel and "Made in Great Britain" on top of the back right wheel. It also incorporates a representation of the rear mounted engine. The base plate is held in place with the usual two machined rivets, front and rear.

This model was issued between January 1972 and was withdrawn in 1973.
