I got this as a kid (about 50 years ago). I cannot remember for sure who or where I got it from but I think I may have gotten it from sending in cereal box tops. I'm sure some of you old timers remember doing that! My dad saved it for me for all those years. I wish i had saved some of the Matchbox cars I had. Does anyone have any idea what it may be worth, if anything? Not that I want to sell it, just curious!

I am pretty sure these sold for a few dollars back in the sixties so I doubt it came in a cereal box.  Collectors of these oldest diecasts are dying off so the market is weak.  A mint example might go for good money ($75) and one in this condition is probably worth $25.  1/43 models were never really popular in the US and the brands available today (Spark, Bizarre, IXO , etc.) are much more accurate and available in many variations and are not something you give your kids to play with so they all tend to be in perfect condition.

No problem.  I went to the York PA toy show yesterday and there was a vendor with a few hundred Corgi cars all mint and in the original boxes.  Ca Ching

That we played with them is what makes the originals so valuable.  Less of them cause we destroyed so many of them.  That's cool.
