Very trendy these days the Volkswagen Type 2 Kombi minibus, this one is a bit knocked about but they always sell for such a lot - and when that happens I settle for a less than perfect example.

Corgi got good value from this excellent casting; there are two Type 2 vans - the plain version & the Toblerone version with Trans-o-lites, this minibus and the pick-up and the Wrecker - and that's full (not quite) set. These are all the ones from the catalogue but Corgi made specials in company livery, I saw one with a Scandinavian department store logo on the side at a toy fair for 18. The decals were good on one side and worn on the other. I must have returned to it 10 times and in the end did not buy it. I seriously wish I had.

The VW Kombi minibus was released in December 1962. It remained in production for four years being deleted in 1966. It is always very pale green over jade green. Sometimes the upper body colour is referred to as grey or cream, but My belief is that it is being mistaken for this pale green. The same error crops up whenever it is used, and it is used on a lot of Corgis, the Airborne Camper, Mini-Cooper Competition, etc. Values are high as it is a popular model and there are no variations, despite what it says in Ramsay.
