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 I 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.
A scarce VW model finished in grey-blue with detachable pale grey canopy. Without windows. Deep grey seating, driver figure. With full complement of accessories! In very close to mint condition.
Typical high quality from this German manufacturer.
Distinctive card box is complete and bright with a crisp feel. Delightful humorous illustrations. Couple of creases and light wear.
