260-2 1:87 VW Beetle was a Classic HO 1:87 scale vehicle set released in 1958. The Volkswagen Beetle was sold in in two models: the short and longer version. The beetles were made of transparent plastic and then painted, and there were models made of colored plastic. These were the models for LEGO VW made as advertising models.

There was a special plate bearing the eight different beetles in different colors that were then available in the VW Dealers. An inscription on bottom states "VW 1200"
