This Oval Window Volkswagen Sedan was produced by LIRA in Ibi Alicante, Spain. LIRA produced plastic toys, but only one toy car is known by them with 100% certainty, the Oval Volkswagen Beetle. There are some rumors about a Citroen DS19 model also. The oval beetle was produced in 2 sizes. Please also look at Lira V1 &2 (being 2 variations of the same toy).

This toy was the smaller of both versions. One piece plastic body with cut out windows, metal axles and good details of front and rear hood, door seams and rear oval window which is a little deformed. The tin chassis has two seam lines running the length of the chassis for strength and has a friction motor. The front hood has a VW emblem otherwise, there are no other markings. It is most probably a copy of the SIKU oval.

On this V3 Oval LIRA VW, the tinplate chassis is held in place with small chassis tabs bent up and over the bumpers.
