My contribution for this Wagon Wednesday is this SIKU Volvo V40.

This was a toy store find from some years ago. My guess would be mid-90's, but not entirely sure. It is marked as “Volvo V40 2.0 16V” and has a neat list of simple specs also cast into the base. Engine displacement, # of cylinders, torque, and top speed.

It has pretty nice detailing all over, and the headlights and grille are silvered. There is a nice tempo on the lower left of the hatch, a very tiny “VOLVO” where it is on the real car. Also, opening hatch!!

The interior is nice, with an accurate steering wheel, and a console shifter. Unfortunately, my camera can’t get it very easily. It is that odd SIKU scale (1/55??) So it doesn’t look right sitting next to my Majorette 245, or any of the other Volvos in my collection. Next to them, it looks more like an XC90. Anyways, enjoy and thanks for looking!
