1957 Oval Ragtop Beetle!

1957 Oval Ragtop Beetle, Beautifully Restored!

Here is a fresh, super clean, and thoroughly restored 1957 Sunroof Beetle that is far nicer than most you'll see.  It is a factory sunroof car, has a great vintage appeal with features like the two-toned paint, 36hp engine, wide white wall bias ply tires, the gorgeous red leatherette interior with the mohair headliner and German square weave carpeting, it's tasteful and very well done.

The body and paint are well above average and the car shows better in person than the pics show.  The chrome is fresh and gleaming, it's way clean under the hood, and the engine and compartment are very tidy, too.  It features the correct flat front hood, bullet blinker front fenders, correct W decklid, and the correct H pattern rear apron as well.  The sunroof cover is also a high quality canvas.

The interior is excellent, mega clean, and very faithful in materials and pattern.  Details to note include the Petri Rometsch style steering wheel, the Golde sunroof handle, period correct Motorola Big M radio, and the 80mph clear needle speedometer, too.  

Mechanically this 1957 is all stock with the 1192cc 36hp engine, split case transaxle, 6 volt electrics, stock suspension, two-toned stock 15 inch smoothie wheels, and a set of proper 5.60-15 Firestone wide white wall bias ply tires. 

This one started as a well above average base and has been finished to a high quality standard.  Ready to enjoy!  Thanks!


Please note this cool 1957 is located in Glastonbury, Connecticut.
