A very nice, desirable, and seldom found one piece cast aluminum hollow body with solid windows and a slit in the roof as it was designed for a KdF Sparkasse (savings bank). A cast aluminum base plate has bumpers and wheels attached to it. Metal wheels/tyres on metal axles. The chassis secures to the body with 2 screws to allow the bank to open to release the coins. The base plate is stamped “Ges Gesch 144/5881 K1.43b". This entry forms a patent dated 9/6/38 entitled ‘Volkswagen Sparkasse” (VW Savings Bank). K1.43 b refers to the class of toys and 144/5881 is the registration number of the patent. It appears the design did not prove practical and the project was abandoned?  One example with thin steel wheels is also known to exist.  At least 9 models are known to exist, one without bumpers which may have been the first prototype.
