Maisto Volkswagen 1600 Notchback, All Stars #31042
Maisto Volkswagen 1600 Notchback, All Stars #31042

Usually we try to tease you with photos of new stuff that is still months away from the store shelves. Instead, here’s a 1:24 that came out last year. The beautiful liquid blue color was deleted for 2009 so you may have to hunt a little to find one. The notchback body style wasn’t common in the U.S. but it is highly prized by collectors now. The Maisto stylists have really done a number on it by adding huge five-spoke wheels, custom interior, chromed engine and, of course, a seriously lowered suspension.
