1950 Split Beetle!

1950 Split Beetle Sedan in Pastel Green, Cool and Fun Car!

This 65 year old Split Beetle lived the early years of its life in Denmark and was recently imported to Southern California by a long time Volkswagen collector.  It has been in advanced collector hands for many years and has survived exceedingly well compared to the average Split Beetle we see these days.  The mostly original interior and stock original running gear are testimony to the gentle life it has led and the careful preservationist stewardship it has enjoyed for many years now.

Some of the many features to note include:

*Original Interior with the exception of the carpeting
*Correct 25hp Engine
*Correct Full Crashbox Transaxle
*Correct 16 Inch Wheels
*Original Split Taillights
*Ribbed Semaphores
*Pope's Nose Decklid
*Correct Grooved Bumpers
*Original Grooved Body Trim
*Early Symmetrically Fluted European Headlights
*Original Polished Round Shaft Split Wiper Assemblies
*And much more!

The body is in clean and presentable shape and was repainted on the exterior long ago in the original color of L11 Pastel Green.  It still displays nicely for those that appreciate a car that can be enjoyed as it is.  Other body details to note include the correct ribbed doors, grooved bumpers, correct early hood with the aluminum handle, correct round horn grills, original low-mounted Split taillights, and the flat H pattern rear apron just to name a few.  The underside and front spare tire well were coated in a weather-proofing undercoating long ago which was very common for the era.

The interior is pretty incredible and is definitely a highlight of this 1950.  The mohair headliner, cloth door panels and seat upholstery, paint, and rubber mats are original.  Hard to believe they are still so nice after six and a half decades of life!  The carpeting was replaced long ago and looks fine, not fantastic, and could be replaced with German square weave if somebody wanted to take it up a notch.  The original steering wheel has been protected underneath that 1950's period accessory wrap and likely looks incredible underneath.  Other details to note include the correct original rear view mirror and sun visor assembly, the original rear seat bolster pillows, original mushroom shift knob, and both glove boxes still have their cloth linings still intact!

Mechanically this Split has the correct 25hp engine, full crash box non-synchronized transaxle, and the electrical system is still the original 6 volt as well.  The engine is properly dress with the T air cleaner, 26mm carburetor, flat cap distributor, flat top fuel pump, acorn style oil filler, early generator with the vented band, D regulator, and star coil, too!

Here's your chance to own a respectable Split Beetle with many original details still intact and it can be enjoyed as it is without a boatload of restoration, parts hunting, welding, and years of time going through that painful, expensive, and life-energy-sucking experience.  Thanks!


Please note that this cool Split is located in Victorville, California.
