Schuco 1:43 Volkswagen T1a Beardalls of Nottingham 450907800
From 1954, the British company „Beardalls of Nottingham“ was a very successful VW dealer. As an unusual publicity idea to draw the attention of British customers to the VW Beetle, a Beetle body was placed on a converted VW T1 box van, thus ensuring that the practical small car from Germany would attract attention. Schuco devotes a fine resin model with metal bodywork on top to this fantastic publicity vehicle. A model that should not be missed from any VW model collection. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 500 pieces a miniature model of this legendary VW T1a "Beardalls of Nottingham" to a scale of 1:43 in the PRO R line. This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.
