Wiking Cursor 261 Volkswagen Pick-Up
Pick-up by Cursor (Wiking) Models, No. 261. in GREY-FAWN. Mint/boxed. Scarce. From The Berlin Collection.
These Cursor/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 Pick-up model is a more difficult find. It has a one-piece screen, wheels with white wall detail and well-shaped supple original tyres. Window glazing.
Complete and crisp, clean, fresh box looks very close to old shop stock.
