1957 Coral Red Oval Ragtop   Price: 18000
Factory ragtop coral red car.

This car was restored in the early 90's. It shows extremely well for its age and is a real head turner.


6" Vintage warehouse beam, new steering box, new tie rods, new king pins. Rear drop plates. 5on130 pattern Disc brakes up front and drilled drums in the rear. New dual circuit master cylinder, new wheel cylinders, stainless braided brake hoses.

1835 IDF motor ceramic coated A1 sidewinder with ceramic coated 1.5" heater boxes

Stock 64 era trans, stock gears. Kennedy Stage 1 1700lb pressure plate and Dual friction clutch disc.

Complete interior in good shape. Very Nice original steering wheel, Shorty's parcel tray.

Original popouts, pan's are rust free Front clip area is in great unwrinkled shape. Euro style bumpers with bumper guards and protectors, Hella hooded rear fog light hooked up as a 3rd brake light. Fluted headlight lenses with KC brand H4's hiding underneath. 5 Cosmic wheels with new tires 195-65-15 and 135r15 Can switch to smart car tires (60% tread) if you prefer.

The Bad:
When it was restored they replaced the front and rear aprons with aftermarket. They fit great but they are not H style or 4 finger style. 1 front fender was also replaced and they shaved the bullet of off of the other. The paint is slightly bubbled where the running board meets the rear fender. Paint is also cracked from someone attempting to close the hood with the prop engaged. Speedometer is not hooked up (it made noise). Trans is leaky and is going to need a trans mounts.

I bought and modified this car to my Wife's liking in 2016 she has lost interest and has put very few miles on it in the last 2 summers. It mostly sits under a cover in my storage facility.

OG VWOA woodslat rack NOT included, it can be negotiated
I also have a set of deep six and 4.5" Hans detailed Fuchs that could be negotiated.
