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.
This plastic Karmann Ghia model has a glossy black finish, grey seating, black steering wheel, window glazing.
Faint scratch or two (visible under strong light).
Crisp, clean and fresh box with teal-coloured stripes would be impossible to better.
