HAMMER LOWLIGHT KARMANN GHIA

The HAMMER Company was founded by Arthur Hammer in Lüdenscheid, Germany, in 1937 and produced tools for manufacturing thermo and duroplast materials. In 1950, they bought an injection mold machine and started producing small plastic toys.

The HAMMER Lowlight Karmann Ghia was made of hard plastic, and consisted of body, roof, clear windows, and snap-on plastic wheels. The body and roof were of contrasting colors, with the roof usually white. The body has excellent details including bumpers, turn signals, rear engine louvers and a finely detailed Karmann Ghia script on the rear decklid. The underside of the body was molded MADE IN W. GERMANY V.W. KARMANN GHIA, either with or without the HAMMER logo. The HAMMER Lowlight Karmann Ghia was part of a set that included several other German cars, such as a Mercedes, BMW, VW and Opel. The HAMMER small scale cars were most often seen as an accessory for model train set dioramas. Sometimes the HAMMER cars had a clear plastic insert that held candy inside the toy vehicle.
