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 LIRA Oval VW Beetle was produced in 2 sizes. Please also look at LIRA OVAL VW V1 and LIRA OVAL VW V2

This toy was the smaller of both LIRA Oval VW 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 flywheel motor. The front hood has a VW emblem otherwise, there are no other markings. It is most probably a copy of the SIKU Oval VW.

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