Think big: ’55 Volkswagen Sedan
Did you ever think that a VW Bug would look like a big car? Well amongst our small car review, it does. And when you think about it, the Beetle was a pretty clever packaging design. Okay, it doesn’t get 86 MPG but it did seat 4 comfortably and cruised the highway at a decent speed. It is also built like a little bank vault. 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 ’55 Beetle is such a car. Everything about it was done with originality in mind. The paint looks beautiful and we always appreciate an old bug with a real Wolfsburg Crest attached above the front hood handle. It was a popular item to steal back in the day. What more can we say about a car that probably everyone one of our readers owned at one time in their lives. Thanks to Michael M. for the heads-up! Click here for the listing.
