Siegfried GÜNTHERMANN Blechspielwarenfabrik existed from 1877 till 1965 and was located in Nürnberg, Germany. They produced a tin plate, lithograph design representing the KdF Wagen of the late 1930s. The body, constructed out of 4 different sheet metal parts, features cut out windows except for the rear split window that is indented and lithographed in white. The four tin pieces making up the body are held together by tabs that are locked and bent over. There are indentations for the front hood, rear deck lid and air louvers for the engine compartment. There are front light assemblies made of tin, with or without light bulbs, that were secured to the front fenders. License plate registration number of "IA 15611". Tin plate chassis forms the running boards, has a clockwerk motor, steel wheels, driver and only a front bumper.

There is also a very rare version with a rear bumper and license plate registration number of "IA 15612". This version is only known without light bulb headlights and has a different driver figure than in the "IA 15611" version. However, it is not sure whether this modell is an original or a modification. The licenseplate seems to be manually altered (the last 1 seems to be altered into a 2).  The original GÜNTHERMANN box was made of plain cardboard and with the photograph of an original KdF Wagen pasted on top. It also came with the GÜNTHERMANN logo of SG in a circle and "Made in Germany".
