Respectful: ’57 Volkswagen Sedan
There are literally legions of VW Beetle lovers and thankfully there is no shortage of Beetles to love. The early cars are prized by collectors for their rarity, quirky options and details. Many Beetles were treated to rattle-can restorations mainly because they were plentiful and thought to be forever value-challenged. So finding a car that was carefully restored with attention to detail is certainly Mintworthy. Today’s ’57 Beetle is such a car. Everything about it was done with originality in mind. Many parts are New Old Stock (NOS) and the materials used in the interior are as close to original as possible. But that doesn’t assure one of a good result. VW quality was legendary back then so one has their work cut out for them in attempting to match the original. This one may have come very close to that goal. If we were able to inspect it in person, we would know for sure. We love the interior and the seats, for example, look like the quality of a 356 Porsche seat. Details like the rare and original spare tire tool kit are appreciated. The engine is detailed to the max too. The asking price is steep for a VW Sedan at $22,500 particularly for one without a fabric sunroof but we are sure you won’t think so years from now. Click here for the listing.
