1949 VW Beetle Sedan For Sale
This drop dead gorgeous 1949 Beetle rolled off the assembly line on September 29th 1949
and was sold at a Mannheim Germany dealership. The car made it into the US at some point
possibly with a US soldier. About 15 years ago the car made it into Canada and two years ago
the current owner bought it and immediately started on a full concours level restoration.
Every nut and bolt has been attended to and everything restored to factory specs.
One of the most impressive parts of the car is that it is a matching number example.
The original body, chassis and engine are still together after 70 years!
The restorer of the car is someone that has other impressive restorations under his belt and his
attention to detail and quality are notable.
He has provided us with a nice array of images of the car during the restoration so that
you can see how far it has come. Above is the chassis and engine when completed.
Interior details coming together.
The super rare Phillips Elomar radio is pure gold.
Doors lined with a sound absorbing material for a slighty more solid ride.
Correct grooved semaphores are fully functional
Very cleanly painted and detailed under the hoods.
Very cleanly detailed top to bottom!
All quite better than new as far as detail and finish quality I'm sure.
