Large and heavy aluminum casting (680 grams) with cut out windows. Casting details included the front and rear decklids, headlights, taillights and door seams. Cast aluminum interior, with seats held by the steel axles of the aluminum wheels. No bumpers and 12 air louvers under the split window. Some versions had a hole in the front section and seem to be used as a pull toy, other versions didn't feature a hole. This played with example was originally painted with a red body, blue interior and green wheels. There is also a convertible version of this model as well. Please refer to: UNKNOWN KdF VW CONVERTIBLE METAL 00 on this site for additional information.

Unconfirmed rumors are that it was produced by a German company called HERA, but we have not yet been able to confirm this.... Who knows more? 

Recently also a truck has surfaced made by the same manufacturer. See enclosed pictures. Does anyone know what model it represents?

The original tooling (body only) also still exists and it was found in the 1980s on a Hamburg, Germany, flea market. Refer to the listing: UNKNOWN METAL KdF VW 02 B. This original tooling was, in the late 1980’s, loaned to the Volkswagen Wolfsburg Museum, Germany. They restored the tooling and plans were made to produce a limited-edition model. Refer to the listing: UNKNOWN METAL KdF VW 02 C. This limited-edition model would have been sold through the VW Wolfsburg Museum store. The project however was never completed. A limited number of prototypes, approximately 5-8, were produced from Resin. This prototype model came with a chassis, closed windows but without interior. No production models were ever produced.
