1955 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1200

Introducing...........the 1955 Volkswagen Beetle RAG TOP!!! If you are looking for a rare beetle, this is the one to own. This baby has been owned and cared for by the same family for the last 35 years. This vehicle was originally sold in California and driven to upstate New York, where it was bought by Mr. Woody Lowe. Woody brought the car to Columbus Ohio where he restored it 35 years ago. The vehicle has the original engine and transmission and even still operates on a 6 volt electrical system! Woody passed the car along to his son, Mark, when he passed away 8 years ago. Mark has kept the family vehicle alive, and well cared for since that time. The car starts with a turn of the key and drives very nicely considering it has not been driven more than a few miles in the past few years. This car is very rare and in great shape, especially considering its over 65 years old. This vehicle would be an excellent candidate for a full restoration or left as is to enjoy that wonderful vintage feel. It is truly a piece of history that can be shown rather than taught. The rag top production numbers are much lower than the solid top and surviving vehicles are an even lower ratio making this car a true "diamond in the rough". Don't miss your chance to own this!

Seller reserves the right to sell this vehicle at anytime as it is for sale in other channels. . Purchase requires $500 deposit via PayPal or credit card.
