"Lovely car and condition with some small cosmetic remarks."

Description

This one was sold new in Stockholm in 1958 and seems to have spent most of its days during the 1960' in the capital's enviroment. It's an early car with a fairly low chassis number, 1094, and is a so called Lowlight, which marks it as an early car. In 1960, to suit the American market and regulations, the headlights moved up to a slightly higher position on the wings, air intakes became bigger and the rear lights changed as well. To some, these early models are therefore moore interesting.
This car was restored in the late 1970's by a former owner and the current owner has been driving it since 2004.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine and the gearbox runs, drives, sounds and feels like a proper 30 hp beetle engine. The ingnition lock is sensitive and might be tricky to get around sometimes.

  • Interior condition:

    Nice and clean on the inside with a good original feel. It is noticeable that the current owner has been a caring user, with a good balance.

  • Exterior condition:

    The renovation and repainting from the seventies has held up very well, around 15 years the front was partly repainted and there are some bubbles and marks in the paint. In 2010 the current owner fitted a new cabriolet roof.

  • General condition:

    Overall, it’s a very nice and early representative of the model. The small paint blister can be repaired to increase the overall impression, but do not disturbing. The car has been driven regularly in the summers during last 15 years by the current owner and the car feel good.
