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.

Description

The '74 Volkswagen was given a new lease, it is a major Re-casting of the Custom Volkswagen US body.Though you can see in the 1974 catalog it is a Hong Kong 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.
