Rare Town Plan Era Sets at Bargain Price...

1 post in this topic

I just sold some of my WIKING HO Scale Cars and Trucks on EBAY. WIKING (pronounced Vee-King) is a German toy maker that produces HO 1:87 scale products for model railroad folks. I've had about 50 WIKING cars and trucks that I bought in Germany in the 1980s, but always kept the packed away and never used.

The price on these has not appreciated anywhere near as much as have the LEGO 1:87 cars and trucks, but the quality and look (especially of the VW Beetles) is almost the same.

So I kept the 4 VW Beetles, and sold the rest of the cars and trucks.

For the Wiking VW Beetles, I built 2 1958-62 Town Plan set models (307 VW Showroom and 306 VW Service) that have absolutely gone thru the roof in value on the secondary market. Each of these 1958-62 Town Plan sets can sell (with box) from $500-$1000+. And without the box, the 2 LEGO VW Beetles in mint condition in these 2 sets have been selling on the secondary market for at least $150 each. The 306 and 307 real sets each has 2 VW Beetles.

These 2 sets make a nice addition to any of the 1960s Town Plan boards....

Saving hundreds of dollars, you can own the 307 for $32 and the 306 for $28. All parts are real LEGO except for the VW Beetles, which are Wiking.

Check it out.... a pair of very nice sets (box top image is included, although the boxes are not...

These sets are so rare, that there's no 307 on Bricklink... and only 1 306...

Note: there are 1958-59 and 1960-62 box types.

Anyway... these 2 sets are very highly sought after by old time LEGO collectors, and here's a chance to get one or both at a very low price because of the VWs used (and no box).
