Description

One of the 20th Century’s truly great automobiles, the Volkswagen ‘Beetle’ spawned a host of derivatives, the longest enduring being the Cabriolet. A single prototype was built pre-war, but it was not until 1949 that production commenced, the bulk of which was entrusted to Karmann of Osnabruck whose four-seater Cabriolet appeared soon after the two-seater Hebmuller-built version. Only Karmann’s would stand the test of time, outliving the saloon and remaining ever fashionable, an instantly recognizable motoring icon to this day. Mechanical changes to the Cabriolet kept pace with those of the saloon until the latter’s production began to wind down in the early 1970s.

This Beetle Convertible is finished in frozen white with black vinyl interior trim as original. Reported to be in good condition mechanically the car comes complete with UK V5 registration and an MoT valid until May 2015. Rarely are these little gems offered for sale on the open market, do not miss the opportunity to purchase this example before for use over the coming summer months.
