Pretzel beetle made of sheet metal, lithographed in green with red roof, as a sliding model without drive, on the rear number plate stands "AA124".
It looks like a Huki toy but was produced from Ananias Ananiades. It has a tin plate chassis with bumpers, steel wheels and no motor.
The major differences between the original German HUKI Split VW and the Greek AA Split VW copy of course, is the AA124 license plate versus a HUKI ?HK? license plate. The AA124 chassis is slightly different with larger holes for the larger tin button wheels and there is no stamping for the bumper guards. Furthermore, the AA124 lithograph design is crude and the registration is way off. The AA124 was never produced with a key wound clockwerk motor and is only free wheeling.
The HUKI tinplate Split Window VW was of German quality of the time and the AA124 could never compete against the HUKI quality all though they were both penny toys of the same era!
The AA124 was produced with four different color themes:
1.Orange tin lithographed body with a green roof section and brown trim.
2.Blue (dark or light) tin lithographed body with a red roof section and brown trim.
3.Yellow tin lithographed body with a red roof section and red trim.
4.Green tin lithographed body with a red roof section and brown trim.
