Wiking 151 Volkswagen Convertible. Dark Red. Scarce PROMOTIONAL model. Mint/boxed, with correct colour spot. From The 25 Year Collection
These Wiking models are quite rare. They are in 1:40 scale and were exclusively made for Volkswagen in the 50s and 60s of the last century. They were give-aways for new car buyers (to please their little boys we assume). It is interesting to know that Wiking made these cars in the same colours the originals were, also they were pure promotional items for VW only and never available in the shops.
Those without windows are extremely rare and achieve high prices when available_.
A scarce cabriolet model finished in deep red with a grey hood and seating. Silver-grey bumpers and wheels. Lights detail.
Mint in a very fresh, clean and bright with scarcely any wear. Note the colour detail at an end flap. ‘Rena’ written in pen on one side.
