This is the penultimate outing for the old reliable Corgi VW Beetle casting. By now it has lost it's opening boot and bonnet, its steering, its plated bumpers & base and most noticeable of all - any semblance of quality in moulding, painting or any other measure of production quality you care to name. All of that together with the addition of Whizzwheels adds up to a pretty sorry package - and why was everything orange in 1970? Still - the quality of the original does occasionally shine through...

The No.383 release of the VW 1200 Type 1 Beetle came in four flavours: Plain orange with a white base & bumpers, red with a green base & bumpers and flower power stickers on the bonnet & doors, a Swiss export version in yellow & black with PTT stickers and a German expoert version in yellow with plated base and bumpers, yellow roof, ADAC Sraßenwacht stickers and number 1341 on the roof. The orange and red versions are of fairly low value, the export versions are worth a good bit more.
