1953 Very early oval window in driving condition

1953
Beetle

This baby was left the Wolfsburg factories in May of the year 1953, only weeks after Volkswagen seized the production of the split window beetles. This is for sure one of the very early oval window build. It was straight exported to Sweden where it lived a real cozy and nice life.

In the nineties it was sold and exported to Denmark where it was restored and painted. It stayed that way till today. This is for sure an older restoration that keeps up pretty well. The paint is still shiny and keeps up very good although some spots showing age. In general the car is solid and the old weldings (done at the restoration in the nineties) are still very properly and nice and serve as they should. The car has no rust that we could detect.

Inside headliner and carpets are replaced. The doorpanels and seats are still original, the seats come with period seat covers as the original upholstery might need replacement. The dash is totally untouched virgin. The front seats feature period original “Hüls” recliner options.

Mechanical wise this baby fires right up and runs like a dream. It’s for sure a driver quality car. Electrics all work, including the semaphores. Head and taillights are original. Although, and as always, we do recommend a full service before hitting the road. This service we can provide at cost on request after purchase. The engine is a later 30 DIN Hp unit (that’s 36SAE Hp to our American friends)  and so not matching numbers.

All in all a very decent daily driver quality car that’s desperate looking for a new and cozy home and like to serve for many years to come.
