HUKI OVAL VW SUNROOF HUKI 2-1

In 1910, Hubert Kienberger founded HUKI, Kienberger & Co., Nürnberg, Germany. They mainly produced Penny Toys and animals on wheels. Before WWII, they used the brand name KiCo, which was later altered into HUKI. In 1943 the Company was destroyed by a fire and only in 1951 production was restarted. Huki seized to exist in the second half of the seventies. Huki always produced tintoys and did not change to plastic cars like many other manufacturers. This caused their downfall. They had developed new toymodels until the late sixties; in their last decade ( or less) they only produced from their old molds....

Very nice tinplate lithograph body representing an Oval Window Volkswagen Sunroof Sedan. Details include windows with people’s faces, taillights, headlights, engine louvers and a folded back sunroof. Tin plate chassis, plastic wheels and friction motor. Although the lithograph design has an Oval VW rear window, the body metal stamping is indented for a rear split window. Most probably a split window beetle version was foreseen, but when the oval beetle came on the market, the lithograph was changed into an oval. License registration number HUKI 2-1 on rear deck lid.
