Oval window and the split bugs are one of the most highly sought after VWs on the market today. In my humble opinion, I prefer 55 and earlier like this one.

EXTERIOR:
This classic is in excellent cosmetic condition with a paint job (within the last 7 years) in the original VW L232 Iris Blue. A show bug that will draw attention everywhere you go, just be prepared to clear the shelves to rack up the trophies, we already have a few for ya. Tootle around town or show her at a cruise night,this car will only appreciate in value!

This Bug was even accepted to the Ramapo NJ Concours D' Elegance last year.

This car has been driven to and from car shows two to three hours at a time, I would not hesitate to drive her to Cali from NY.

Since this car has been driven (only to shows), you may find some very very minor imperfections, but nothing that will deter you from taking her to a show, they are very small, my camera can't even pick them up, the car is still winning trophies.

After every drive she is stored in a climate controlled environment.

The Cali body and chassis are incredibly dry, all original panels, floors, fenders, hood, decklid, rockers, and doors.
