Wiking Models 311 VW Saloon
VW Saloon by Wiking Models, No. 311. DEEP RED issue. Later issue without 2 x horns on the bumper centre. Mint/boxed. Scarce. 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 VW model has a rich deep red finish, palest grey seating, deep grey steering wheel & dashboard, window glazing.
Crisp, clean and fresh box is very close to old shop stock quality.
