Volkswagen Kombi Bus by Wiking Models, No. 231. TEAL & PALE GREEN version. Scarce PROMOTIONAL model. Very, very near mint/boxed. Scarce - and another First for QDT! 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.
This VW Kombi model has a distinctive teal and very pale green finish, grey seating & white steering wheel, VW emblem, window glazing. Driver.
High quality plastic construction model. 1:40 scale.
Virtually mint condition.
Crisp, bright promotional box has a small storage crumple and a small fleck of surface loss at an end flap.
