1957 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic
|Here is a great 1957 Classic Beetle with a history. “Turtle” was purchased in 1957 by a woman from Virginia, here the car resided with it's first owner for 20 years. Around 1978, Turtle's was purchased by its second owner a major Vw enthusiast and a Master Mechanic for Volkswagen of North America, he had "Turtle" for the next 24 years. Turtle has been entered in many classic VW shows, winning a ton of awards. The car was used in Volkswagen of North Americas 50th anniversary marketing campaign. In 2003 " Turtle" was then acquired by a Michigan enthusiast who drove the car to local Vintage VW events. Turtle has been garage kept and extreamly well cared for.|
Turtle has been repaired and restored as needed, it is as close to being 1957 correct as possible. The body and pan numbers are correct and matching numbers (January) 1957. The engine has been changed at some point (when is unknown) but is a period correct engine. Turtle has been repainted with the original “Agave”, and has been re upholstered with the correct Red interior (Passanger arm rest purposely left 100 % original as it came from factory). All gages and lights / turn signals / and 6 volt charging systems work, new battery recently installed.
The factory installed original serial number floor mats are still in the car and still covering the original factory installed carpet. The headliner is the factory installed headliner from 1957. The insulation under the back seat and under the hood are factory original. Headlight lenses are original factory installed serial numbered lenses. This vehicle is a very fine example of an original untampered and unmodified 1957 Volkswagon Beetle. The car has been in no accidents, rust free and has all correct panels. The car has never been taken apart, this is as nice as you can get. A joy to drive and the nostalgia to turn heads on the street, in a parking lot, or at a vintage show.
