Wiking Models Karmann Ghia
VW Karmann Ghia by Wiking Models, No. 143. DEEP RED issue. Mint/boxed. RARE BOX VERSION. From The Berlin 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.
Superb old shop stock quality item, this plastic Karmann Ghia model has a rich deep red finish, grey seating, white steering wheel, window glazing.
Crisp, clean and fresh box colourful box is an especially difficult find. Very light wear and a couple of light stains and a small area of surface loss on an end flap (due to price label or similar).
