Wiking Models 151 VW Convertible
Volkswagen Convertible by Wiking Models, No. 151. Ivory. Scarce PROMOTIONAL model. Mint/boxed. 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 I 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.
A scarce cabriolet model (plastic) finished in ivory with a grey hood and matching seating. Silver-grey bumpers and wheels. Lights detail.
Mint in a complete and bright distinctive card box.
