Wiking Models 113 VW Beetle
Volkswagen Beetle by Wiking Models, No. 113. Ivory colour issue. Mint/boxed. Scarce. 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.
Another superb old shop stock quality item, this plastic VW Beetle model has a delicate ivory colour finish, pale grey seating, black steering wheel, window glazing.
Crisp and complete card box is a very fine example.
