Hello!
Somebody owns a Horikawa (Japan) mystery action Beetle? From Catalogue 1977, there was 3 models (danefield.com) but none you can find in internet. My is Fire Chief and despite this relatively "new" model can't be found anywhere.

It would be helpful if you posted a photo, or described unique markings or features.

At the moment I'm in Thailand, will be back soon...I live here so once I go back Italy I'm working all day and have no time for internet. I will take a picture and publish in january when I'm back here and I have more time...
For the moment you can look this link: http://danefield.com/alpha/forums/topic/18787-horikawa-catalog-1977/
There is only one in google, the Police version. May you know why only so few pieces are around? Thanks

Question remains: How many was made? See only one Police version in google. Absolutely rare I think...?

Aside from the photo there's not much more I can add, except to say it's an uncommon model.

@ TinTom

I have never seen the Horikawa Fire Chief before. But I have the Police and the Polizei in my collection.

If you want to sell the Fire Chief, I would be interested. Smile
