Rare Beetle 1953 Oval for sale.

1953 is a special year for the VW Beetle. In this year, the famous ‘Zwitter’ Beetle became an 'Oval' Beetle, the rear window became oval instead of 2 separate windows.
The Zwitter Beetle was built until March 1953. This 'oval' Beetle rolled off the conveyor belt on 11 April 1953 with many recognizable parts from a Zwitter Beetle such as a rare 25 HP engine.

I have been working hard to get this oval Beetle in good condition again, it has been completely body-off restored.

The beautiful original herringbone interior was also completely redone and looks excellent.
The Beetle is equipped with a 30 HP engine, the original 25 HP engine is clean and of course included, this makes the Beetle all the more unique because it has matching numbers. A real enthusiast knows this is very unique for a VW Beetle because the engine is easily interchangeable.

At the moment it has a lowered look, but it can be delivered in completely original condition.

The Beetle comes with a certificate from Volkswagen and an appraisal report.

Beetles from this year are rarely offered.

The car can be viewed and picked up in Mol, Belgium.

This is a used vehicle. It is highly advisable to view the vehicle before bidding, to avoid disappointment afterwards. To arrange a viewing appointment or for more info, please contact Catawiki. Offers are excluding transport and export, unless otherwise indicated. Prior to bidding, please check your local legislation regarding vehicle registration.
