This car was made on December 13 1951 in the wonderful cool and less common azure blue color with the grey upholstery.
The freshly new made split window beetle left the factory on December 14 1951 with transport to the Belgian importer of D’Ieteren who sold it through its dealer network… it stayed on our Belgian roads till 1979 according to registration and technical inspection documents accompinying this jewel.
The car always kept its original drive train and is today still fully matching numbers, all original and nothing made up!
Around 7 years ago the car changed collector and dealer hands a couple of times and it ended up in a collection and awaited its restoration. That restoration is finished now, after 4 years, and its beautiful! 100% executed with a big eye to detail! All original NEW Kamax bolts with 14mm heads hold the fenders and chassis to the body. Just to name one thing.
Car has still all original body panels from THIS car, all 4 correct split window fenders, doors, hoods, they all been on the car since this baby left the Wolfsburg VW factory on Dec 14 1951!
Paint is applied nicely! The chassis not too shiny, the body like it should and everything is looking very close like when it was new and left the assembly line!
Molding is the correct alu molding, not the ugly shiny stainless what’s floating on the market for cheaper price. On this little gem no expense was spared to make it like it should! A perfect car!
Mechanicly this car is even better! Full matching numbers. And the engine dressed as original as could with the star coil, the 8mm fuel lines, the T can aircleaner and the flat top distributor cap, seemed fan shroud just to name a few!
The car drives also like a new split window, its really nice AND good! The 25 hp engine purs like a kitten end the fully crash gearbox well… its a real fully crash gearbox, but all is rebuild and checked with care!
Inside its even better with all nice sorted original materials, the wool headliner, the grey seat covers and carpets, exactly like the car left the factory. Also the dash, the steering wheels the pedals, this baby is HOT real HOT!
This must be one of the best restored cars we ever could had our hands on, in 35 years of Volkswagen life this must be the best and the closest to original split we can offer here for sale.
Don’t be shy and ask us gladly for more information and or pricing. But imagine with the amount of labour, effort and parts invested in this wonder split it come with a certain price tag… but if you’re looking for the best, the nicest and the closest to original, there’s no substitute!
This is the car to own and its all ready to bring to concourse and show off! This is a winner…Garanteed!
