HUKI SPLIT VW HK391

In 1910, Hubert Kienberger founded HUKI, Kienberger & Co., Nürnberg, Germany. They mainly produced Penny Toys and animals on wheels. Before WWII, they used the brand name KiCo, which was later altered into HUKI. In 1943 the Company was destroyed by a fire and only in 1951 production was restarted. Huki seized to exist in the second half of the seventies. Huki always produced tintoys and did not change to plastic cars like many other manufacturers. This caused their downfall. They had developed new toymodels until the late sixties; in their last decade ( or less) they only produced from their old molds....

Very nice tinplate lithograph body representing the Volkswagen. Details include windows with peoples faces, taillights, headlights and engine louvers. License registration number HK391 rear deck lid. The HK391 was produced with a 2 door or 4 door sedan design, no motor and no “Made In” markings on the rear deck lid. Tin chassis with metal wheels and bumpers, variation with black chassis and bumpers. See chart for variations.

It has been recently discovered that the AA124 tin lithographed Split Window VW (HUKI Copy) was actually produced in Greece from the toy manufacturer of ANANIAS ANANIADES (AA).
