The Volkswagen Beetle was produced from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world. During the 1950’s, the car was modified progressively; the obvious visual changes mostly concerned the rear windows. Towards the end of 1964, the height of the side windows and windscreen grew slightly, giving the cabin a less pinched look; this coincided with the introduction of a very slightly curved ‘panoramic’ windscreen. The same body appeared throughout 1966, with a 1300cc engine in place of the 1200cc engine; it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that it displayed an obviously curved windscreen. It has been regarded as something of a ‘cult’ car since its 1960’s association with the hippie movement and surf culture.
Described to be in excellent all-round condition, if one is searching for a nice and early beetle then look no further. With just 1,200 kilometres recorded, and finished in a very period colour combination, and in very original condition throughout, not to be missed.
Offered at No Reserve on 18th May 2019 at Chiswick House.
