Vintage Schuco Toys

Apart from the current Schuco models, we also carry a range of vintage models. We are trying to list all we have but taking the pictures and drawing up the descriptions is very time consuming but eventually this listing will be complete.. one day... I hope...

We would like to add that the description of ANY vintage piece is ALWAYS subjective as beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We try to describe the pieces as good and as honest as we can with close-up pictures and especially describing the possible flaws of a piece. Nevertheless, the description is always subject to interpretation so let the photos speak for themselves. The items are sold "as-is".

Vintage Schuco Micro Racer 1035 Go-Kart

vin108
!

Vintage Schuco Micro Racer 1035 Go-Kart.

Introduced in 1962, the Go-Kart is amongst the rarer Micro Racers.

This particular example is VERY close to mint condition and has only a couple of minor paint chips (probably storage damage) which do not distract from the overall appearance and of some odd reason the wind-up hole seems to have been enlarged.

The tires have been replaced.

The mechanism is in excellent working order although a standard key sometime slips a little on the wind-up shaft.

Only 1 available of course.

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3041 Limo Red Made in US Zone Germany

vari3041limored
!

Vintage Schuco Varianto Limo 3041 Made in US Zone Germany.

Marked as "Made in U.S. Zone Germany", it can be easily determined as made between 1951, the start of the production and 1964.

It is a Limo in red livery. I am not entirely sure about the paint; it could be the original paint that is crazing or it could be have been repainted at some point in the past.

However, it looks like it was never opened so it could very well be the original paint but let's assume it's repainted to avoid disillusions.

The mechanics function well but it could do with a little cleaning and oiling.

Vintage Schuco Sonny Maus 2005 US-Zone Germany 1952 - 1964

Vintage Schuco Sonny Maus 2005 US-Zone Germany 1952 - 1964.

Marked as "Made in U.S. Zone Germany", it can be easily dated as manufactured between 1952, the beginning of the production, and 1964 although production continued until 1966.

Fully functional and complete, it is not mint as it is let down a little by the quality of the paint but it has too much character this way to justify a repaint.

When you wind this model, it will drive off while the mouse waves its arms up and down. A true joy to watch!

It uses the same basic body shape as the Examico 4001 and Akustico 2002 but because of the Mouse, Schuco left the windscreen off.

The mechanism is in more than excellent shape and fully functional.

The bad paint does not seem to have been caused by play-wear but more by not so careful storage as the bottom plate is in excellent condition.

It comes with the correct # 2 wind-up key.

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/15 Shunting Platform.

Although it is unknown what the production span of this "platform" was exactly, these were made before 1964 as they are marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

Most probably made between 1954 and 1964.

These plastic tracks were used to, amongst others, create loops in a Varianto track (similar to the drawing below, taken from a vintage Varianto catalog).

We have a number of these platforms available, all in mint condition.

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!

Although it is unknown what the production span of this "station" was exactly, these were made before 1964 as they are marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

Most probably made between 1954 and 1964.

These plastic stations with moveable "STOP" sign were used to launch cars onto a Varianto track (similar to the drawing below, taken from a vintage Varianto catalog).

The station is in near mint condition (some minor scratches on the bottom).

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/31 Tunnel Made in US Zone Germany

!

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/31 Tunnel.

Although it is unknown what the production span of the tunnel was exactly, this one was made before 1964 as it is marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

Made between 1954 and 1964.

The tunnel fits onto the Varianto wires and the cars can drive through it without any problems.

The tunnel is in very good condition with only some very minor surface rust in the inner seems keeping it from being totally mint.

It has no paint chips or dents.

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/38 Straight Track.

Although it is unknown what the production span of the track was exactly, these were made before 1964 as they are marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

It was made between 1954 and 1964.

These pressed metal tracks were used for "fixed" pieces of the complete Varianto lay-out, effectively creating "two-lane traffic".

We have a number of these tracks available, all in good but not totally mint condition.

We would call the condition "Very Good".

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!

Initiated in 1957, this particular model was built between 1964 and 1969 as it is marked "Western Germany".

It is in original condition but there is age determined degradation to the paint work.

It doesn't look to have been played with but more that it has suffered from handling.

Vintage Schuco Piccolo 707 BMW 507 Green

!

Vintage Schuco Piccolo 707 BMW 507.

Introduced in 1957, this was the 7th Piccolo to be issued. It remained in the line-up until the end in 1969.

It is in played-with condition with some paint chips (especially on the bottom) but it comes in the ultra-rare bright green color which is normally only found on the Volvo P-544.

Definitely one of the more sought-after Piccolo's.
