Description:

1956 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

1956 Oval Window Beetle, Redone but highly original car. Last owner had it 30 plus years, was second car for a while then stored and loved. Great car!


Body and Paint

Straight and clean with really nice paint. Originally the car was Silver but the owners wife wanted the current Red which is a Bus Color. Has a couple tiny chips from use and some small lifting on the right driprail from sun exposure, but overall excellent. Amazing pans and inner body. Dry Western Body. Original fenders were changed in the 70’s sometime to 1962. The right one was damaged and there were no replacements available on short notice. The Left fender and both rare glass markers do come with the car.


Chassis, Suspension and Brakes

Original other than maintenance items, handles tight and drives very well. Brakes work great. Original rims and caps with 2yr old Goodyear tires. There is a matching fifth tire that comes with. Current spare in place is possibly the original tire.


Powertrain

Original 36hp 1200 CC engine is in place, Oil bath air cleaner, Bosch distributor, overhauled at some point, starts and runs very well. Clutch trans and shifter feel nice and tight. Clean and well kept. Actually quite fun to drive, hard to believe it’s only 36 hp. No major leaks. Nice.


Interior and Misc

Clean. Seats are new, had our interior guy recreate a match to what we believed original. Rubber floors, original headliner. Clean dash, Original wheel.

Original jack.

Even has the original glass license plate lamp lense.


In full disclosure, Very small oil drip when sitting.


1956 is one of the most highly collectible beetles, The Iconic Oval Window.

Most have been modified extensively, here’s a very close to original example.

Don't miss the chance to own this piece of VW history.
