1956 Oval, Beautiful Driver In Reed Green!   Price: Sale Pending
1956 Oval Window Beetle, Beautiful Driver In Reed Green!


This 1956 Oval was purchased in the mid 1980ís and has been in the same family ever since. They moved from San Diego to Virginia in 1988, and the Beetle was restored by a shop there. In 1997, they moved back to the west coast. It has been driven sparingly over the years, has been stored indoors, and still presents very nicely -- a 1956 you'll be proud to drive. The 30-year-old restoration is showing some minor blemishes, but it still looks plenty nice both inside and out.

Some of the features to note include the L313 Reed Green paint, Dark Green leatherette upholstery, mohair headliner, era correct Motorola Big M radio, accessory shifter lock, proper 36hp engine, and the correct split case transaxle, too.

The body is well above average, the paint shows well for a driver, and any minor flaws are documented in the approximately 100 pics on my website: some paint chips, flaking chrome on a bumper guard, etc, normal stuff for an older restoration that has been well maintained since. Details to note include the correct W decklid, snowflake taillights, icepick handle doors, bullet front fenders, and the front hood was replaced with a later unit back when the restoration was done all those years ago.

The interior is nice, clean, and very faithful to the original. The Dark Green leatherette upholstery fits beautifully, door panels are excellent, mohair headliner is nice and tight with just some typical moisture staining below the rear window, and the carpet seems to be German square weave, too. The stock steering wheel is in great shape and the original 80mph clear needle speedometer is impressively clean as well. I'm sure you've noticed that most oval Beetles don't have this nice of an interior these days!

Mechanically this 1956 is stock with a correct 1192cc 36hp engine, stock split case transaxle, stock suspension, and it runs nicely. I can send videos of it running to seriously interested parties. Other details to note include the old school Michelin XZX radial tires, correctly two-toned stock 15 inch smoothie wheels, and the original Bosch 36hp cast iron distributor is included in the sale although it is not currently installed.

It has come time for the family to pass along their well-loved 1956. This would be a great option for someone who wants an Oval to drive, and a far wiser purchase than tackling a project car. As always, please feel free to contact for further information. Thanks!
