Ovals are cool: ’55 Volkswagen Beetle
Every so often we come across a nicely presented VW Beetle in our inbox. And that is the case with today’s Beetle (thanks to Frank K. for the heads-up). It is an Iceland Green Beetle with the original engine in good running order. Back then, there were little things to distinguish the older cars from the millions that came after. Besides the oval-shaped rear window that replaced the split rear window (hear that Corvette lovers), they had things like heart-shaped tail lights and semaphores.
This one has all of those things plus a period correct roof rack and pop-out rear windows. The seller must be a slave to originality because this is shod with bias-ply white walls. That is a scary thought. Although there were literally millions of these made, cars in exceptional condition command big numbers. The asking price is $26,000 and we don’t think that is too ridiculous. Click here for the listing.
