Wiking Models 231 VW Kombi Bus
Volkswagen Kombi Bus by Wiking/Cursor Models, No. 231. Greyish-green issue. Scarce PROMOTIONAL model. Very near mint/boxed. From The Berlin Collection.
These Wiking/Cursor 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 VW Kombi model has a greyish-green finish, white seating & steering wheel, white trim, window glazing.
High quality plastic construction model. 1:40 scale.
Very near mint condition.
Crisp, bright pictorial box. Couple of small end flap tears.
