"There is something special about a VW Type 1 Cabriolet, a true classic. Here in a nice colour combination with good functionality, pleasant condition and user-friendly."


A pleasant classic that has had relatively few owners and has received proper attention over the years. Service, repairs, painting, etc. have been done along the way, as needed. So not completely untouched and original, but in a nice genuine condition and maintained as it should. Ready to drive with approved inspection/MOT and exempt. A lot of documentation and instruction manuals are included.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Easy to start and the engine ran smoothly, clutch and gearbox felt reliable, as did the suspension and brakes. The car has a few years and miles behind it but felt lively and easy to drive. The underbody could not be fully inspected but both inspections and feedback from the owner indicate a well-maintained and cared for example. With that said, all respect to the fact that almost fifty years can leave its scars.

    Eberspächer heater installed but function uncertain, not used by the current owner.

  • Interior condition:

    Original interior with some wear. Accessory steering wheel cover with leather grip. Newer Panasonic stereo with speakers in the doors.

  • Exterior condition:

    Very nice paint, nice chrome, glass, wheels and tyres. The convertible top appears to be tight and in good condition but with some wear. During the photo and inspection prior to the sale, it was so cold that we did not want to fold the top down too much. The convertible top cover is missing.

  • General condition:

    A nice Beetle Cabriolet in a genuine and roadworthy condition, looking forward to another summer season where it, together with the new owner, can enjoy the countryside at a comfortable pace.

Facts about the model

Efter att produktionen av Bubblan kommit igång blev det även öppna vagnar from 1949. Fanns olika varianter, både två och fyrsitsiga men Karmann-versionerna tog över. Deras fyrsitsiga versioner hade redan från början gedigen hantverkskvalitet med god precession. Inte minst gäller det sufflettarrangemanget i hög kvalitet och gedigna material, som även fungerade vintertid. De öppna vagnarna kom att utvecklas i stort sett som en vanlig "bubbla".

De senare modellerna av VW Typ 1 blev allt motorstarkare, fick större bagageutrymme och tidstypiska inredningsdetaljer för ökad säkerhet såsom inbyggda nackstöd. Till årsmodell 1971 kom 1302 LS med 1600-motorn och 50 hkr. Till 1973 blev det 1303 LS med en helt ny instrumentbräda samt panoramavindruta. Exteriört större baklysen och tanklucka med "fingergrepp". Året efter togs de sista LS-vagnarna in till Sverige och året därpå såldes den sista nya Cabrioleten i Sverige. År 1978 slutade VW att tillverka "bubblan" i Tyskland men Karmann fortsätter att bygga Cabrioleten fram tom 1980. Trots att det var en helt annan vagn än ursprunget drygt 30 år tidigare, var det ändå en liknande känsla.

Nu knackade framtiden på dörren och det var dags för efterföljaren Golf Cabriolet men det är en helt annan historia..

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
