This is very good. The Corgi Type 2 Volkswagen is a very good model to start with, one of those that just works as an object, like the Mini and the Bedford TK, the modelling has an extra something which absolutely evokes the real thing. All of them are on this website and all of them work brilliantly, vans, minibuses and pick-ups.

This one does the most tricks though. an excellent tool box, working winch, tow bar and all that other bits and pieces in the back, oil drums etc.

However when it gets added into one of the racing gift sets that Corgi produced everything steps up a gear, put a racing car trailer on the back and one of those Lotus Élans with the detachable chassis and you have the weekend privateer racing outfit par excellence. Good solid hard core Corgi stuff.

The VW Breakdown Truck was released in 1966 and in the core range it is always beige with red loadbed. You will see it in white, but this is from GS37 or GS6. The stand-alone model stayed in the range until 1972. There are no listed variations other than it will have either cast or spun hubs.
