Atlas Dinky Toys – Volkswagen

By Maz Woolley

Atlas Dinky 181 Volkswagen

The latest release in the Atlas Dinky Toys series is a casting we have already seen used for the Swiss Post liveries version. It has also been seen before in the continental Atlas Dinky series.

The model replicates a later model being painted light blue and fitted with silver dish wheels. The box still features the original painted metal wheels and the picture shows the darker blue shade often seen.

This replica has been nicely produced even if this casting has been used before. It seems amazing now that Dinky had this model in production from 1956 to 1970 by which time it was completely obsolete.
