LEMECO SPLIT VW V1

Plastic body with solid windows and details of the front and rear hood, headlights, doors and bumpers. No chassis and metal or plastic different colored wheels and metal axles attached to the body. The metal wheels were a silver or brass color. Inside the roof is marked “LEMECO No.ML69”. They were sold on carton blister packaging. Also, a plastic garage is known with ML59 marking on the base. The LEMECO VW is basically a copy of WIKING SPLIT VW Small Scale V2. One LEMECO body color variation was molded with a plastic that glowed in the dark.

Just to note:  LEMECO was founded in 1948 by Rune Heurlen. They resided in Hägersten, a suburb of Stockholm, until sometime in the early 1960s when they moved to Örbyhus in Uppland. They produced toy cars in 1/87th (plastic) and 1/43rd scale (metal). They manufactured the 1/87 plastic toys from 1948 until mid/late 50’s.

They wanted to market their products with the name 'Mekanolek' but had to change to LEMECO due to trademark reasons. Parts of their production is also marketed under the name 'Selka'.
