Description

The '74 Volkswagen was given a new lease, it is a major Re-tooling of the Custom Volkswagen US body. The striped tampo variation was very short lived, it seems that the lining up of the tampo presented a challenge. Thus it was changed to the bug on the roof. I have never seen a capped redline wheel version. Issued in bright enamel orange, it was never seen again til the Wisconsin Toy Company Promotion in 1980.

not to be mistaken by Larry Wood's Model of the 1989 Version VW Bug, the casting of that one more resembles the Hong Kong body of the old VW.
