HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.

Regular price $16.00 Sale

Dating right back to 1950, the VW T1 was in production until 1967. Officially known in Germany as the Transporter Kombi, it comprised a very roomy utility van which could be converted to a minibus or more popularly a camper van.

This model is registered AMO 426A from 1963.

It comes as a van and is decorated in a muted blue, typical of the period. Enhanced with silver exterior trim, note the white wheels!  The interior is moulded in a pale grey.

In real life, the T1 was the successor to VW’s Beetle and its longevity proves it has been equally successful and popular over the years.
