CH TOYS NO.605 & AHI BRAND VW BUS

A plastic VW Bus that has an elongated shape with a top section, bottom section, interior seat insert with steering wheel and chassis. The top section has 25 cutout windows and details of the front VW emblem and some had the rear window section opened up. Some had a plastic window insert and the front windshield was curved instead of flat.

The bottom section had details of the headlights, taillights, front turn signals, rear engine compartment lid and handle. Other details were the doors with handles, cargo doors on the left side, engine air louvers and a rear license plate of C.H. 605.

The black plastic chassis used a front wheel drive friction motor, plastic rims with rubber tires and a rear metal axle with rubber tires as well. The chassis is molded with CH NO. 605 MADE IN HONG KONG.

All of the plastic sections are assembled and are connected together with glue.

This toy is quite common, mostly in the clear (colored) versions with no driver and no opening rear hatch. The CH NO. 605 VW Bus is also out of whack in scale, as the length is too much for the height and width. It measures 151mm long, 48mm wide, 62mm high and represents an elongated 1/32 scale. Production was in the early 1960s through the 1980s.

The chrome over pink VW Bus on the blister pack is marked with the AHI brand name, NO.3071, made in Hong Kong, but they all have the "CH NO. 605" on the bottom chassis and rear license plate. This VW Bus had a plastic roof rack with a suit case. Another version had a plastic roof rack with a kayak on top and a door sticker of VACATIONLAND BUS. The CH NO. 605 VW Bus was also sold in a colorful box printed with the following: MADE IN HONG KONG FOR LOUIS GREENBERG & SONS, INC., NEW YORK, N.Y. 10010
