"A fantastic car which was owned by the same family until 2013 Non renovated with all original detailing, reupholstered in the original fabric."


This early beetle was bought by a well known inventor Karl Nelson, and remained in the same family until 2013; the car had its last MOT in 1996.
In the 1960´s Karl Nelson repainted the beetle, but unfortunately the top coat wasn’t good, which resulted in a using linseed oil as a water protection, hence now it has its cool finish. Karl added his own brake light and indicators mounted behind the rear grill, as he was worried people didn’t see him braking or turning, the original pop out indicators are still present and working.
At some point in the 1990´s, the seats and door cards have been reupholstered in original fabric. However, carpets and headliner are original. It should also be mentioned that the steering wheel has been repainted.
This car is free from rust and has never been welded or panels replaced, it has a few small dents, scratches and rust blister but nothing that stands out. The rubber seals are dry and it’s fitted with original 16” rims and diagonal tires.
