This is the final 1:43 scale model car from Corgi and it is still the same VW casting that start life with the lovely East Africa Safari model in 1965.
It is quite extraordinary that this should come out at this time in 1977, when it would have looked quite out of place on the shelf in the Toy Shop next to all the bigger models or Juniors. I wonder whether it was an export edition, perhaps, and it does not appear in the normal catalogues for that time.
Anyway, these seem quite scarce and don't often appear.
This is a nice example with very good, virtually unmarked paintwotk and original decals showing some minor wear only. The Whizzwheels are the later six point variety seen on some other models in black plastic and in good condition.
