Volkswagen European Police Car (492)


Following the popularity of the Volkswagen East African Safari rally car, Corgi issued their second Beetle in 1966, just one year later.The features of the earlier model were repeated, most notably the steering feature – although this time via a roof-mounted emergency light (which came in either yellow or blue) with a ribbed chrome surround.

The model was most commonly produced in a green and white West German ‘Polizei’ livery, with a mid-brown interior and two police figures. As with the rally version, the bonnet and engine lid opened, the front headlights were jewelled and the bumpers and running boards were chromed. There were even tiny VW-badged mudflaps on the rear wheels!

Size: Length: 93mm Width: 40mm Height: 35mm

All our Corgi Toys replicas are authentic and faithful to the originals and come with their own numbered certificate of authenticity.

excellent reproduction and quality, I still have my original from 50 years ago and this was an excellent "refresh" to a much loved Corgi VW.
