Notes

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 Karmann Ghia model has a vivid red finish, grey seating, deep grey steering wheel, window glazing.

For comparison only, please note this bright red shade version on the left is distinctly different to the bright red version also available from this collector:

Crisp, clean and fresh box with teal-coloured stripes looks like old shop stock!.
