1955 Oval window Karmann Convertible project RHD! Price: £16000 ono
March 1955 Beetle Cabriolet project.
UK delivered, RHD car. Rare as hens teeth!
There are roughly 27 RHD oval window convertibles known to survive today, and this is an early, "ribbed door" car, making it even more desirable.
Comes with Volkswagen dating certificate & original VIN tag.
Uber-rare L322 Silver Granite which is a mid '55, cabriolet only colour, (and a pretty beautiful one at that).
Pretty solid starting point but some rust repairs are obviously required.
Correct era pan with oval window RHD pedal assembly, oval trans and oval engine. Doors, engine lid and front wings are original to the car. Bonnet is correct, and rear wings are correct style repro.
Original seats & door cards included, but will need upholstery work.
Hood frame, catches, handles, etc all included.
All glass included.
Loads of parts included: New Wolfsparts rear valance / front & rear bumpers / NOS door handles / interior handles / decklid t-handle & catch / NOS bonnet handle & catch / all glass including rear frame & NOS rear screen / correct headlights / correct heart tail lights / all window winder mechanisms / door catches / dash parts / really nice condition speedo / steering wheel and flawless horn push / early fuel tank / 5 x 15" oval wheels / horn grills / RARE convertible hinge covers / sun visors / glove box lid & lock / locking bonnet catch / etc, etc.
Sure, there's a few parts left to source, but it's a pretty damn complete starting point, it's mostly nice and solid, most "hard to source" parts are included, and it rolls and steers just fine. Grab a rare asset that is increasing in value!
