Perhaps one of the most endeared car ever produced was the VW Beetle. Volkswagen literally rose from the ashes of WWII with the Volkswagen Type 1 or Beetle. The Beetle was different, simple, reliable and fun. These core elements would prove to be important as the VW beetle would eventually become to be the most mass produced car of all time; surpassing the Model T in 1972 with car number 15,007, 034 and by 1973 production of the beetle surpassed 16 million units. More amazing than the production numbers, is that the Beetle never became boring. Through Volkswagen's commitment to quality, the Beetle kept evolving and improving over time. The introduction of the Super Beetle in the early 70's demonstrated that fact as VW deviated from their tried and true torsion bar front suspension replacing it with a coil over strut suspension improving usable space under the bonnet, creating a longer wheelbase and improving overall suspension and handling.
The example offered here, according to the owner, is a three-owner car that comes to the car friendly state of Arizona. The car has been selectively restored and is finished in its original factory color, L54D, marina blue. Today, this Beetle stands up as a wonderful example in all areas. The miles are believed to be original; mechanically the car runs great and is a blast to drive. Documentation includes: Certificate of authenticity, owner history, tons of service records, shop manual etc.
The Volkswagen Beetle is an automotive icon and respected in all circles. With readily available parts simplicity of design, they are easy classics to own and enjoy. The car offered here in this desirable color combination, will surely pass enjoyment on to the next owner.
