This 1957 Oval Window Bug was brought to Michigan in 1996 and sat in a garage until last year when we acquired it. It has never been driven in Michigan winter and is rust free solid with no body work or bondo done to the car. Not original paint and current paint is not mint. Has some scratches and random imperfections visible in the pictures. Radio does not work. A few things are not connected as of yet. Windshield wipers, fuel gauge sending unit, blinkers, and emergency brake are not currently connected ut should all function once connected. Car is driveable. Headlights, tail lights, brake lights all work.
Original steel fenders.
This is not a numbers matching car. It has a 1500cc motor with the thrust bearing just recently re done and lots of new parts. New floor pans were replaced previously no idea when. It runs great starts right away every time. Drives and stops nice.
