RIBEIRINHO was founded in 1905 by José Teixeira in Guimaraes/Portugal. It is unclear what they produced prior to WWII but after the WWII they produced a very large assortment of cheap plastic products such as toys. They manufactured many household appliances and other products. They also copied some WIKING 1/40 models, like the Volkswagen 1200 (as a Split Window Sedan and also as Oval VW Sedan) and the Volkswagen T1. They furthermore issued a series in 1/60 scale, very much based on the SIKU toy vehicle product line of the time. One of the models is the Oval  Window Volkswagen 1200. In 1/87, they copied and modified WIKING models like the Volkswagen 1200 Convertible.

Plastic body with cut out windows and good details of front and rear hood, door seams and rear oval window with air louvers. VW hood emblem, oval horn grilles and the headlights with lines for the lenses. Black or clear plastic window insert. Black plastic chassis molded with bumpers. Black plastic wheels (identical to SIKU) and chassis marked VOLKSWAGEN. This RIBEIRINHO Oval Window VW is a basic copy of the SIKU Oval Window VW.
