    Here we dive into a series I know less than nothing about. Guisval is made in Spain for the local market. SEAT is a Spanish automaker building on license from Fiat of Italy. I don't have a clue what to say about the Ibiza model, it is not one I'm familiar with...

    So if anyone can share some info on this model it would be appreciated!
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    If you meant the REAL car then i got this from google. As for the model itself nope



    (borrowed from wikipedia)
    The SEAT Ibiza is a supermini car that has been manufactured by Spanish car manufacturer SEAT since 1984. It is SEAT's best-selling car.[2] The Ibiza is named after the Spanish island of Ibiza and was the second SEAT model to be named after a Spanish location, after the SEAT Málaga. It was introduced at the 1984 Paris Motor Show as the first car developed by SEAT as an independent company, although it was designed by SEAT in collaboration with well-known firms including Italdesign, Karmann, and Porsche.[2]

    From the second-generation version onwards, SEAT formed part of the German automotive industry concern Volkswagen Group. All subsequent Ibiza generations, and the rest of the SEAT model range, incorporated Volkswagen Group platforms, parts, and technologies.

    The Ibiza spans five generations, among which it has debuted twice (in its second and in its fourth generations) a new platform of the Volkswagen Group. All of them were the top-selling model in SEAT's product line.

    The Ibiza is now available only in five-door hatchback variants; between 1993 and 2008, saloon, coupé, and estate versions were sold as the SEAT Córdoba. In 2010, an estate version, called Ibiza ST, was launched.

      The Isbiza model name has been used by Seat (Spanish Fiat) since 1984 and is named for a Spanish Island. The Guardia Civil is a national police force with military type responsibilities. This makes for a nice looking police model - one that I do not have in my collection.but not surprising as Guisval models are not the easiest brand to track down and add to a collection.

        I have been thinking about adding some Guisval emergency vehicles to my collection. Seems when US sellers (and even many in Spain) on eBay have them, they want $20 or more. And I understand many of our Spanish members have problems tracking them down in the home country of Guisval.

          As one you has a number of Guisval emergency vehicles in my collection I can attest that they have been one of the harder brands to obtain over the years. Often times it has been "being in teh right place at the right time." Some that I have came from a mail order dealer back in the '70's and '80's who seemed to be able to have models from all over the world that he sold at reasonable prices in those days - others came from contacts I have had in Europe over the years. It has been quite sometime since I added any to my collection.

            I was in Spain in September and was able to find lots of new Guisval. The only issue of course was that I had to drive around for long periods stopping off at various retailers to find them. They can be notoriously difficult to find but as a general rule I found the best places to look were independent toy shops, tobacconists and news stands.

              They do offer models with some nice tampoing like yours.
              I've only got 3 Guisval I picked up locally at train shows or markets years back, this Espace police van I seem to have paid $5 for, but the other couple I got years before I don't believe were even that much. I believe I posted the bus and bikes over at MCCH way back when, and I thought someone mentioned the bus was a Guisval model, but not manufactured by them, if I'm remembering right.

              The back of the package makes me kind of wonder if 13 year old kids over there still chew on their toy cars, I mean, I understand a company protecting themselves, but really, 14 years old.

                I can't speak to your bus, it's not a model I'm familiar with, but I do have a bus sold as Guisval but based on a Lledo casting.

                I am not certain of the association between the two makers, Guisval and Lledo, but I have this one example to verify such a collaboration. If I had to guess I would think your bus to be Lledo, and likely from the same period of time as my model here.

                Those bicycles are awesome! Do you have a better view of them?

                    Here are some photos of the bikes and a better shot of the bus, I think you'll agree though it doesn't look like a Lledo, as yours seems to do, but I was thinking more like a 3 inch of the less known brands like Yatming or something.

                      It appears I did not save an image of the dealer display Salvatore had for sale back when I bought a lot of his offerings, essentially an entire display with this same bus in different liveries, every bus was different, and that is how it displayed in a shop.

                      I don't know enough to quibble with whoever told you what they did, but there are MANY variants of this bus as Guisval, and I presumed that is who it belonged to.

                        The double decker coach in the pic above is an oddity as its actually a Realtoy Hino Grandview and not the more familiar "generic" casting Guisval have been making for decades. Quite why they would need to source from an outside company for something so similar to what they already make I have no idea but it's something they have done very infrequently in the past. I have a Guisval BMW 850 which I bought brand new and sealed back in the early 90s on a holiday to Spain which is actually a MC Toys casting bearing that name on the baseplate.
