All new West coast classics correct interior. all new radial tires including spare. Coch restored steering wheel. correct tail and head lights. original glass. this car runs and drives like new !!!! This little baby started it's life out in Belgium assembled back in March of 1956. Now torn down and put back 100% to it's original state (well maybe just a little better ;) Of coarse that is what we do. make things better. It features a number of Belgium only spec parts. including window glass. front sway bar. and riveted (instead of welded) 15 inch wheels. It also does not have a body number in the original location like the German built cars (stamped into the body below the vin tag) instead it is stamped into the right side inspection plate. It also does not have a made in Germany tag either. it never had one because it was not built there. Yes. by 1956 demand for these and different country DOT standards were all over the place. so Volkswagen would send cars disassembled to other countries for assembly. This somehow was easier to get them into said countries and save on import duties. To think this little beetle managed to retain most all of it's original parts including motor (now with an Okrasa engine kit) front beam. and transaxle. Yea. this is a numbers matching car after 59 years. WOW !!!! Take a look at the pictures and please ask questions. as I'm sure I left something out.
