The '''Custom Volkswagen Beetle''' is a modified version of the [[Volkswagen Beetle]] production car. Because of the split rear window in Germany, this car is called "Brezelkäfer" (Pretzelbug). The no split-window one is called "Ovalikäfer" (ovallybug). In 2016, the tooling for the Custom Volkswagen Beetle was changed while the [[Volkswagen 5-Pack]] was being produced. In the middle of the production run, the Custom Beetle's "sunroof" was closed up and replaced with a roof rack, the massive exhaust was removed and replaced with dual exhausts that are part of the interior, and the base was changed to plastic, likely due to cost cutting; due to this, it is possible to find two variants of the pack, where the Custom Beetle has either the massive exhaust, metal base and sunroof or a roof rack, plastic base and dual exhausts.

Designer Larry Wood
Number L0085

Description Edit

The Custom Volkswagen Beetle is a modified version of the Volkswagen Beetle production car. Because of the split rear window in Germany, this car is called "Brezelkäfer" (Pretzelbug). The no split-window one is called "Ovalikäfer" (ovallybug). In 2016, the tooling for the Custom Volkswagen Beetle was changed while the Volkswagen 5-Pack was being produced. In the middle of the production run, the Custom Beetle's "sunroof" was closed up and replaced with a roof rack, the massive exhaust was removed and replaced with dual exhausts that are part of the interior, and the base was changed to plastic, likely due to cost cutting; due to this, it is possible to find two variants of the pack, where the Custom Beetle has either the massive exhaust, metal base and sunroof or a roof rack, plastic base and dual exhausts.

VersionsEdit

The Custom Volkswagen Beetle has come out in the following 1:64 scale versions:
