Wiking Models VW Van 'FIRE'
VW Van 'FIRE by Wiking Models. With blue roof light. Mint/boxed. Scarce. From The Wesley Lodge 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 Transit Van ‘FIRE’ model has a blue roof light, two seated figures, beige colour wheels, window glazing.
Crisp, bright and fresh box has very minor wear.
