Volkswagen Typ 1 Bubbla 1303LS Cabriolet 1600 — 1973

Between 1973 and 2021, the same family owned the bubbla. When the daughter took over the car 18 years ago, it was renovated. It's still nice and fresh, only driven 128,000 kilometers.

"The car is in a normal well-kept on the inside and outside. It starts up easily and runs well. There are some paint improvements and little blisters and stone chips on the front of the bonnet and wings. Despite this, the overall impression is good."

"The car is in a normal well-kept on the inside and outside. It starts up easily and runs well. There are some paint improvements and little blisters and stone chips on the front of the bonnet and wings. Despite this, the overall impression is good."


This bubble cab was purchased new by a VW dealer in Örebro and has been passed down through the family, from grandmother to son to grandchildren, with a family in the countryside outside of Örebro.
When the granddaughter turned 18, the family had the car restored at a Örebro workshop. The car was taken from its base plate and cleaned and painted in the same manner as the rest of the chassis. The body was repainted in its original color and received new wings. The car received new lights, bumpers, steps, and moldings. Top'n Trim replaced the convertible top on the car a few years later (the cost of convertible top refurbishment was SEK 24,000).
Since 2002, the car has been utilized as a summer car and has performed admirably. It's been in the barn all winter. Fahlke's Volkswagen service in Åmål has now completed a review and new inspection/MOT. Please contact Mathias Fahlke at 07610-22063 for additional information on the car, which was delivered from Åmål.

  • Mechanical condition:

    It's been well maintained and runs fine. According to previous owners, the engine is a VW replacement engine that was installed when the car was about 7 years old owing to noise in the old engine. The new one inside has travelled around 700,00 km.

  • Interior condition:

    Complete and nice, no comments, however a little extra cleaning on the inside would improve the condition.

  • Exterior condition:

    Professionally painted in 2002, it's still in good condition, although if you look closely, you can detect some small blisters on the front canopy, as shown in the photo. Overall, the impression is positive, and the condition is normal.

  • General condition:

    A nice bubble cab with a known history and low mileage. Almost 20 years ago, it was more than SEK 100,000. To be truly nice, an internal recond is required. Otherwise, nothing to complain about. Car is in OK condition and is ready to drive home.

Facts about the model

1973 kom den sista stora uppdaterade modellen av Bubblan, men rundad framruta och större baklampor. Detta var toppmodellen som byggdes i Tyskland och bara fram till 1975, då Golfen som börjat säljas året innan tog över.
Cabriolet modellen byggdes dock av en särkild leverantär, Karman i Osnabuck, på karosser från 1975, fram till 1979. De sista åren främst för USA-marknaden. I Sverige såldes Bubbla-cabben som 1303LS åren 1973 till 1975 och kostade nästan dubbelt så mycket som en vanlig bubbla. Få svensksålda finns kvar, då de såldes i litet antal.
