Hi 

I would like to get a small (Approx 1/64)  Volkswagen Beatle. A model that represents the 60 thru 67 model.  (small bumpers)   Really does not have to be the best or most expensive, just one that is dark green or one I can paint. Any suggestions? 

Thanks

JD

Hi Jack,

There are lots to choose from. A visit to Walmart or another department store should reveal a decent selection. Below are two currently for sale.

HotWheels and Matchbox usually issue at least one VW Beetle yearly in the one dollar range. The ones shown are somewhat more.

Greenlight also produced one.  Here is a picture of mine.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the info, have purchased a couple greenlight VW's from PCM.com.  Question, does HW have what I would call an Easter egg in some of their castings?  Adding some bondo to a HW 944 and saw a item cast on the rear shelf of the interior.  Kind of neat?

Hi Jack These 'Easter eggs' are noted and have been recorded on other sites. But this item is unusual.
