"Due to careful storage in its barn, this car appears to be in practically untouched condition."


A VW 1200 from 1958, that fell out of the car register. All the documentation needed to bring it back into the register is available.

The car has been stored for around 47 years, which may explain why it is in such good and untouched condition.
Before being started up after its rest, it had the fuel tank cleaned and new fuel lines fitted. The carburetor and fuel pump have been rebuilt, as well as fresh oil, seals, and valve adjustment.
The brakes have been renovated and the car has been fitted with the original ATE master cylinder and brakes cylinders. At the same time, this was done, all the brake lines were replaced with new copper ones.
The car runs and works as it should, even the pop out indicators work.
When it was discovered that the floor mats were dried and crack, in connection with the start-up, the owner purchased a new mat set that is included, see picture. The right rear jack mount came loose and a replacement one is included.

Facts about the model

Volkswagen Typ 1 behöll sin grundform men i praktiken kom det nyheter varje år.
1959 var sista året för körriktningsvisarna i b-stolpen. Nytt var också krängningshämmaren och den förstärkta kopplingen. Året innan hade rullgasen ersatts av en vanlig pedal men en större nyhet var den stora bakrutan. Det skulle dock dröja ytterligare två år innan det var dags för helsynkroniserad växellåda och 34 hästkrafter istället för 30.
