VW Käfer "Porsche Service" Beutler Pick Up with Carrera-Motor, 1:43

On 30 July 2003, a small party took place in Puebla, Mexico, when the ultima edición, a true classic, the 21.529.464, a Harvest Moon Beige model of the very last Beetle left the Mexican Volkswagen factory thus terminating the production history of the Beetle after almost 60 years. Emanating from Germany, the Beetle had contributed to the motorization of over 150 countries. Apart from the standard version, there were also many more variants on the market. A special commercial vehicle variant was the VW Beetle Beutler Flatbed Truck.

The Swiss bodywork manufacturer Carosserie + Spritzwerk Beutler AG, established in 1943 by the Beutler brothers, specialized on vehicle conversions. Used as the basis, the VW Beetle was manually converted from 1951 onwards into convertibles, small delivery and flatbed trucks. Thanks to its payload of 250 kg, the flatbed truck was an outstanding means of transport in post-war Germany due to the favourable purchase price. Schuco is copying the VW Beetle Beutler Flatbed Truck, laden with a Porsche 356 Carrera engine, as a miniature model in a scale of 1:43 so as to enable every fan to purchase this classic for their own display cabinet.

The 1:43 size series from Schuco offers a wide-ranging selection of high-grade and very detailed models of die-cast zinc and resin. The model range in this sector extends from old timers to the very latest vehicles, consisting of legendary and renowned racing cars. The wide choice and vehicle parts reproduced down to the
smallest detail in the highest quality, such as filigree exterior mirrors, aerials, windscreen wipers or door handles, makes this series into a permanent fixture in the most popular scale for collectors.
