1958 Beetle Ragtop Sedan For Sale

This is a return listing here on Oldbug.com
The car was bought this past June from it's owner/builder based in Wisconsin
and it now resides in Arizona where it's new owner has decided to send it off again.
Not sure why...if it is funds or space or another car...but whatever the reason
here it is again.

The condition of the car is unchanged, and these photos show the car as it sits today.
It is a gorgeous little car and the color combo is a personal favorite of mine.

1958 was the first year for the "square window" in the back
and while it lacks the impact of an Oval window, it retains a lot of the early charm
and at a greatly reduced price. If this car was one year older, the price could almost double!

Sweet machine. Clear Arizona title and current registration.

Sweet sweet sweet!

The photos above show that car as it sits today...the photos below show the previous listing
and go into a bit more detail.


This gorgeous 58 is a magazine featured show winner that comes to us from Wisconsin.
(NOTE: Now in Arizona...as stated above)

Its an interesting and well restored little car.
The history is quite colorful as well.
It was sold new in Anchorage Alaska, had service stickers in the door jam prior to restoration from Florida,
was discovered by the current owner in Huntsville Alabama, and then went to Madison Wisconsin!
Where is it going next???

The car was featured in a beautiful full color spread in VW Trends magazine in June of 2004
and was also seen in the May 05 Calendar as the feature car.
It has won a variety of awards and has always been well treated and maintained since the completion of the restoration.

The color is "Glacier Blue" which is a gorgeous silver blue.
Accented with the whitewalls and nice bright chrome.

The interior was from West Coast Classics and is done in the proper 1958 two tone color combo.
Nice accessories such as the "Banjo" steering wheel and Bambus parcel tray give it some more cool factor.

Top quality materials and nice fit and finish.

Check out the accessory defroster vent dealies and that "Golden Lady" horn button.
"Square weave" carpets too.

Bud vase looks great as well and adds a touch of class.
Factory radio block off plate in in place.

Door panels feature the proper armrest and chrome trimming...very nice.
All the body rubber and window scrapers were replaced...this was a full restoration.

Under the front hood is cleanly detailed

New wiring harness in cleanly installed.


Original jack in the holder

Hood s clean and well painted underneath as well.

Spare tire tool kit is another nice accessory.
One clean and minor modification from stock was the removal of the rubber seal and metal holding strip
along the hood and decklid openings. Nice rubber seals have been installed along the ends of the hood and decklid to provide a proper seal.
This makes for a much cleaner look when the hood and deck are opened.

This 36 horse engine is the original number's matching unit that has been completely rebuilt.
It runs excellent and is a delightful little driver.

Paintwork is very nice on the car and it has all the proper period correct attributes such as the
"snowflake" glass taillights.

This was a body off restoration and the flender wells were painted and detailed.
Radial tires are fitted with whitewall tire rings for the classic look and modern day road handling.

Nice to see a car done cleanly like this.
The wheel trim rings and painted center hubcaps is also a great look.

Clean clean clean underneath...this is no normal "driver" level restoration.
This was a long hard road and a major expense to get the car to this level.

The flash kinda discolored this shot...but as you can see this is one tidy machine.

Clean clean clean.

Nice to see the clean new hardware and the finish work on the fender wells showing the factory spot welds.

Wolfsburg hood emblem

Fluted Bosch headlight lenses are European issue, yet really look "right" on a car of this vintage.

Another nice accessory is this "Bee Catcher" passenger window vent item that was designed to allow
air movement without allowing water to come in when the rain is coming down... not that this car is ever driven in the rain,
but it is a neat accessory just the same.
You can also see the navy blue stayfast canvas ragtop cover here which contrasts the body color beautifully.

The awards pile and framed photos...this is a very well loved member of the family...not just a car.

Here are a few mementos of the vehicles show history since the completion of the restoration.
I like the look of that big trophy and the "Best of Show" award as well.

Magazine featured!

In closing this is a very nice example of a US spec 1958 sunroof Beetle.
Done in one of the best colors of the era, a quality restoration with only a couple small diversions from absolute factory
and it has a nice history and amazingly still retains it's original numbers matching engine.
Ground up restoration...top level parts, some nice accessories and a proven award winner and magazine feature car.

And to close...here is a phot of the car as it sits today in Arizona
What a beauty!

Why build one when you can buy one this nice?
