Going through previous flea bags I found some purchases I’d forgotten about, and this is one. Made in Israel between 1969 & 1972, according to this Wiki article. It mentions the Beetle briefly;

Some cars, especially the Beetle, came with 1970s style ‘hippie’ flower decals,
but the Bug also came in a German (surprisingly, not Israeli !) police version.

It’s missing the back bumper and a good amount of paint, but I couldn’t remember if I had one in my collection, or even if I’ve ever heard of Sabra before, so I decided it was a necessity.

The hood, the only opening feature, wouldn’t stay up on its own so I had to use a screw. Initially, I thought it was a Dinky based on the disc wheels, but nope.

According to the wiki, they made a lot of late 60s American muscle cars too. A quick search in the bay shows over 60 cars, most way better shape than mine, but no VWs in any condition to compare it to.

EDIT: From the same hawl, the line-up photo is dated in Oct, but I’m not sure if that was the finding of, or the shooting of...no matter.
