1953 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic Zwitter Deluxe

The split rear window beetlesare rare andhighlysought after, hey have been for quite some time now. Inrecent years the values have been risingprettyfast and steady.Rarely do you see them become available for sale. The restoration ofthis Zwitterwasperformed someyears ago, utas you see itlooks beautiful. It wasrecently mechanically refreshed. The paintappliedis Glasurit Azure Blue and shows incredibly well. Thereare no signs of rust anywhere. The vehicle does not show any signs of accidents.It drivesflawlessly and correct as it should. All thelights, linkers and electrical systemfunction correctly. The chrome is in excellent condition for its age.The trims, andles, nd most of the chrome on this beetle seem to be original to the car except for the bumpers which have been replaced.The bumpers we found the car with also go with the sale, hich may be the originals?but presented some flaws and manual repair taking away from its beauty. The panel fitment on this Zwitteris very good, ll theweather strippingon the car looks like new as we understand the carwas alwaysgaraged. The gas tank is the original one with the small cap and indentation right on the tank. The interior is superb and shows as new,demonstrating a high level of quality workmanship.The clock on the glove box is quite rare to see. The steering wheel is unique and a nice touch, ot sure if it isgenuine as I am told one has to take it apart to find out. It also comes with a very nice Bekowa roof rack.Included with the salethere is also acorrect but not matching numbers 1100cc motor. The 1300cc it presently hasruns perfect.This beetle was owned by an avid collector that actually possessedtwo split windows when he parted. Both were imported by him many years ago from Europe.This is a Kilometers car and was his pride and joy. It isone of the last Zwitters everproduced from what we have researched via Vin records available. The oval windows came right after the production number of this great example. His wife says he hadsome friends with the same fever for these vehicles but never reallywent to any VW events or gatherings. It was just an individual passion.Therefore this is one that has been flying completely under the vintage VW worlds radar, ntil today. The vehicle comeswith a clean Florida title and ready for its new home. Please contact me with any questions you may have. PPI inspections are welcome.
