1950 Volkswagen Deluxe Split window Beetle “Black L41”


Hereby we do offer a Top restored split window beetle in magic Black “L41” color, the original color that was applied by Volkswagen when this baby started on the assembly line in January 1950.

This baby has 4 original fenders mounted with correct 14mm head bolts to the body, also the doors, front hood and engine lid are original split window beetle.

All bumpers, semaphores and latches have the correct nerves and the car is largely and wide restored to factory specs.

The interior is re upholstered in all correct German materials. The headliner, seats, door panels and carpets are all to exact standards as this baby rolled of the production line. The cool dashboard (without ashtray for January 1950) is the drool over…

The front and rear axles are full correct split window units and the fully rebuild 25HP engine, although not matching numbers with the chassis, is very period correct with an aluminum case (not magnesium like the later split window beetles). The engine is dressed up all completely with D regulator and seemed fan shroud, also 8mm fuel lines etc. all to factory specs (except for the Star coil)

If You looked always for the early as possible perfect black magic split, you can stop the search, better as this one they simply don’t come. It’s so close to perfection overall that more perfect would be called illegal we suppose…
