1947 Beetle, Matching #'s, Museum Quality!   Price: Sale Pending
1947 Beetle, Matching Numbers, Museum Quality Restoration!

Here's an absolutely stunning and exceptionally well done banana bumpered Beetle that is as clean on the underside as it is the top side. Incredibly, it still has its original matching numbers 25hp engine after 73 years of life. I can honestly say that in my more than 30 years of involvement in the Vintage Volkswagen scene, I do not recall ever seeing another banana bumper post war Beetle anywhere near this clean.

Important early details to note include:

Stamped Decklid
5 Finger Rear Window Pressing
Small Gas Tank
Early Speedo With Large Chicken Head Knobs
Early Ribbed Semaphores
Double Eyebrow Headlights
Original and Matching-Number 25hp Engine with K manifold, Early Fan Shroud, Moon Coil, Early "Finger" Cap Distributor, Mushroom Oil Filler, etc. etc.
Full Crashbox Transaxle
Cable Brakes
Crankstart Setup
VW Stamped Logo Dash
Metal Glove Boxes
Tiny Roller Accelerator Pedal
3 Spoke Steering Wheel
Mushroom Shift Knob
The list goes on and on for days!

Those of you who have been all the way through the process of bringing an early car to this level understand how few base cars are even capable of becoming this car and how many thousands of dollars, years of focused time, and absurd number of hours it requires.

By the time you found and purchased an excellent base car, sourced all the parts, did all the research, and whether you are super talented and could do the restoration to this level yourself or if you had to pay a professional to do it for you, you almost certainly could not replicate this car for the list price, especially if you gave yourself any compensation for the value of your own time!

A rare opportunity to own a very special and quality Vintage Volkswagen that would be a superstar in any collection or would be right at home in any automotive museum. Thanks!
