Notably complete and fresh detailed bonnet label, complete door numbers and “Nairobi” label. Unmarked chrome bumpers, wheels, baseplate, and sparkling jewelled headlights. Rhino.
Just a few minor marks to the paint finish. Note this model has been factory fitted without a steering wheel (a sealed unit, so it has not gone astray).
The colourful card plinth on which car and rhino sit is a most attractive display piece. Crisp, bright and clean.

Box reverse has lots of information about the “Beetle”.
