Rusted Herbie Movie Diecast Car

Updated on January 30, 2015

Memorable Iconic Movie Car – HERBIE!

Any car lover and movie fan would surely have heard of the name Herbie and may have even watched some of its movie. This post is all about a modified movie car diecast featuring Herbie from the movie of the same name.

A lot of people calls Herbie as the Love Bug because it is the first title of its movie. The Herbie movie franchise is owned by Disney. Herbie’s car make and model is a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle and sports a racing stripe painted on the middle of its body from the front hood all the way to the back. Herbie also wears the number 53 and is usually painted white.

There are a total of six Herbie movies (including the one made for TV movie) spanning from 1968 to 2005. Herbie has also appeared from its own TV series and made cameo appearances on other famous Disney owned titles or series.

Herbie’s appearance generally remained the same except for its last movie “Herbie: Fully loaded” which is released on the year 2005. In this movie, Herbie still has sports the number 53 and the middle red and blue stripe, but with a lot of heavy modifications to match or compete with racing technology revolutions.

As mentioned, the love bug movie diecast car featured here is a modified version of Rusted or Dirty Herbie which is done by a local customizer. Others may also know rusty Herbie as Junkyard Herbie from the movie "Herbie Goes Bananas".

      I love the time and trouble that you took to photograph this little toy car. Everybody shouldn't have any problem remembering Herbie the love bug. I remember the scene from the movie where Herbie drove through the mud and then had to turn his windshield wipers on to see. It's captured perfectly with this little toy car.
