At last. This took some finding and is nearly the last in the Whizzwheels list that I have needed to find. That seems so strange as not only is it the last of all the era (as far as I can tell there were no more 1:43 scale made by the company as it was then) and so more recent than others but also it is quite an ordinary little VW that you’d have expected to be quite popular.
Every example I’ve found has been in the States so maybe I’ll discover that it wasn’t sold here. Something needs to account for such rarity - but the US prices have been less than the shipping and duty! So it can’t be considered scarce over there.
Anyway, it’s an odd little car, quite poorly finished, similar to the orange one, or the ‘Flower Power’ one with nothing to open, no mudflaps or jewels. The series ends on this very, very basic note with just a chequered stripe on the roof and sides and a Racing number 5. Some advertisers seems to think it was a Police version because of the blue colour and stripes!
This is a totally immaculate model in an as new box and even the acetate is intact with just a small scuff mark on the box but it’s as good as you’ll find anywhere. After all the effort I made to get this, it’s not going cheaply!
This is most definitely not a common model in UK at the moment.
