UNKNOWN KdF WAGEN VW METAL 02 A

Large and heavy aluminum casting (680 grams) with cut out windows. Cast aluminum interior, with seats held by the steel axles of the aluminum wheels. No bumpers and 12 air louvers under the split window. Some versions had a hole in the front bumper and seem to be used as a pull toy, other versions didn't feature a hole. This played with example was originally painted with a red body, blue interior and green wheels. There is also a convertible version of this model; see enclosed pictures. The front wheels of the Convertible version could be turned by a handle protruding from the front bumper. Unconfirmed rumours are that it was produced by a German company called HERA, but we have not yet been able to confirm this.... Who knows more? 

Recently also a truck has surfaced made by the same manufacturer. See enclosed pictures. Does anyone know what model it represents?

The original tooling (body only) also still exists (see listing UNKNOWN METAL KdF VW 02 B); it was found in the 1980’s on a Hamburg, Germany, flea market. The tooling was (in the late 1980’s) lend to the Volkswagen Wolfsburg Museum, Germany, which restored the tool and plans were made to produce a limited edition model (see listing UNKNOWN METAL KdF VW 02 C). This model would have been sold through the museum store. The project however was never completed. A limited amount of prototypes (app. 5-8) were produced from Resin. This model came with a chassis, closed windows but without interior. No production models were ever produced.
