A Ferdinand Porsche design dating back to the ‘30s; today, his “People’s Car” is an automotive icon everywhere in the world, and certainly one of the most recognizable cars on the planet. Securely on top of the desirability list are these early oval window bugs, especially one in the fine condition of the vehicle offered today. Built from 1953 - 1957, the Oval Window Beetles are coveted by collectors along with their classic features, performance was improved with larger oil galleries in the engine, longer gear ratios, and new brake pedal design.

This Euro-Beetle is presented with an outstanding finish in bright red, a color never offered in the US market. It also features the rare semaphore articulated turn signals that collectors desire and the Euro-spec bumpers. It rides on the factory steel wheels, whitewall tires, and all the trim and rubber in the vehicle has been completely replaced. The engine has been upgraded to a single-port 1500 cc example that is tight and runs smoothly and accurately. The original 6-volt system is in place, and few classic vehicles will offer the new owner such an authentic European driving experience. Inside, the entire interior was replaced by the correct Euro carpets and fabrics, all sourced and installed by Lenny Coop of West Coast Classic Restorations. The correct tan dot cloth interior is quite rare and was expertly installed for a true factory look.

Despite its age, this fine Oval Window Beetle is in fine fettle and a wonderful vintage car to own. It's a vintage car that's easy to live with and simple to maintain, with excellent parts availability. With an accurately executed restoration by marque experts, this example is both pleasing to the eye and tremendously fun to drive; the attention it receives is simply unbelievable. Take advantage of the rare opportunity to step up to one of the very best and enjoy all the perks of driving an icon that was thoroughly and professionally restored to a high standard.
