UNKNOWN VW BUS METAL 01

This orphan ambulance is made by an unknown Japanese manufacturer (JAPAN stamped under the drivers door).  It was obviously an attempt at copying the BANDAI V2 Ambulance  lithograph, but many of the body details are just wrong for a VW Bus.  The front windshields are so small that the windshield A-pillars would severely block the driver’s view of traffic.  Secondly t...

TAIYO VW BUS

TAIYO of Japan made in the 1960s a set of tin plate VW Busses with a length of 227 mm.

PN - PHILIP NIEDERMEIER VW BUS (?)

There has been a debate about this PN (Philip Neidermeier) bus toy for many years. People collect it as a VW Bus as it has the typical ‘nose’ look. None of these PN tin toys have a VW logo so like all of the little cheap penny toys – they were inspired by cars of the time, but they did not take it too seriously to make a detailed model of a particular car.
