"A totally untouched Type 1 with a very nice history. All the paperwork are in place for a new registration."


Car dealer Thure Söderlund did not manage to sell this VW Type 1 for SEK1000 in the late 50's. The car was put in a shed and was duly forgotten behind other forgotten stuff. A couple of years ago it was retreived from its hideout and made driveable again with a fantastic and charming patina.

Facts about the model

Största nyheterna inför Volkswagens modellår 1951 var ischiasluckorna mellan framskärm och dörr. Samtidigt infördes också det lilla Wolfsburg-emblemet på huven fram och hastighetsmätaren fick röda markeringar som visade när det var dags att växla. Tack vare kamaxeldrev i hårdfiber istället för metall blev dessutom 24-hästaren tystare. Liksom tidigare och senare var motor och växellåda byggda i aluminium. 
Under året tillkom även bättre stötdämpare. Här i Sverige såldes som tidigare bara Exportmodellen – som för året fick en tunn kromlist runt framrutan.
