Dinky Toys 181 Volkswagen
Volkswagen by Dinky Toys, No. 181. Sky blue version. Spun hubs and scarce chrome base. Very, very near mint/boxed. From The Heart of England Collection.
A fine gleaming example of this model which has a distinctive sky blue finish with bright spun wheels, scarce with a chrome base and black treaded tyres.
Looking like old shop stock:
In original, barely handled condition. Note a little as-made rough casting on a front wheel arch.
The correct lighter yellow picture box looks very close to shop-fresh, with clean, vivid colours and crisp card. Note that this version has the colour spot detail at the end flaps.
Barely any wear.
