"A very good rolling project that only needs a few interior fixes."


One of the more desirable VWs, with an oval rear window and in unusually good condition for a non-renovated vehicle. The only repair was to the engine when a valve became stuck during a longer downtime; it has only been serviced and maintained over the years, with no modifications or renovations. The car is structurally sound, but the interior could use a refresh. It is now operational after a lengthy period of inactivity. The chassis number for this car is slightly more than 800,000. Cars with chassis numbers less than one million are particularly valuable.

Facts about the model

Under 1955 års modell bjöds det på ny klädsel. Samtidigt hade man gjort om formen på bränsletanken för mer plats till bagage. Senare under året infördes avgassystemet med dubbla pipor, ny ratt och stolar enklare att justera.
1955 passerade Volkswagen en miljon tillverkade bilar och det här året var Scania-Vabis i Södertälje världens största VW-importör. Märkesåret 1955 startade även tillverkningen av Karmann-Ghia.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
