This is the second run-out for the Volkswagen Type 1 saloon with the opening back and front and working steering. The first was the East African Safari rally car in 1965. This is an excellent model with first class detailing and engineering. This car was in the range from 1966 to 1970 with no listed variations.

It is though a true, pedigree Corgi, excellent modelling, brilliant engineering, let down slightly by not brilliant production standards - the edges of the moulds are a bit too dominant. But it is good. It's a shame the steering wheel has come adrift and is sitting on the driver's shoulder, but better that than the later release of the Beetle as a Driving school car where there is no steering wheel at all and the production standards have plummeted.
