1958 European Ragtop Beetle, Nice With Upgrades!   Price: Sale Pending
1958 European Ragtop Beetle, Clean, Solid, and Nice Driver with 356 Brakes and Wheels!

Here is a very respectable early Beetle with some cool features and will suit loads of guys who are seeking a fun and very respectable example to enjoy.

It started life as a genuine European hardtop with semaphores and the sunroof was nicely grafted in some years back. It has been in the hands of a few well-respected Beetle collectors for many years so it was a good car from the start and always well cared for, too.

Some of the cool features to note include:

*Ragtop Sunroof, quality canvas
*Semaphore Turn Signals, which work beautifully
*Genuine Porsche 356 Brakes
*Genuine Porsche 356 Lemmerz Wheels, matched set of 5
*European Fluted Headlights
*European Blade Bumpers
*Genuine Kilometer Speedometer
*Popout Windows
*36hp Engine, beautifully and accurately detailed

The body is super clean, straight, dry, solid, and features the correct doors, decklid, H pattern rear apron, 4 finger front apron, flat front hood, and correct snowflake taillights, too. It was repainted several years back and still looks great till this day. There are some minor chips and flaws but it still displays very well for a car that can be driven regularly. The floor pan is extremely clean on both the top and bottom.

The interior is very tidy with a quality mohair headliner, burgundy upholstery and panels which look great and fit beautifully, German square weave carpeting, the correct semaphore turn signal switch, and a Blaupunkt radio (not currently fully functional). Also note the correct steering wheel, dual sunvisor option, and the lap belts have been added for safety, too.

Mechanically this car is an excellent runner and driver with a nice 36hp engine with approximately 9,000 kilometers (5,600 miles) since the rebuild, correct and rebuilt split case transaxle from Rancho, Porsche 356 brakes and matching set of 5 Porsche 356 Lemmerz wheels, nice Vredestein radial tires, and a stock 6 volt electrical system with an Optima battery, too. The wiring harness was recently replaced as well. The car starts right up, idles nicely, semaphores pop right up, and it runs and drives as it should. I have several videos of the car in action and driving down the highway to share with seriously interested parties as well.

This 1958 is a very good value for someone who is seeking a very clean and dialed early driver with several cool features and upgrades. Trust the fact that you'd have a very difficult time attempting to bring a lesser car to this level for the price this one is being offered at! Don't waste time with projects, buy smarter, this is the one! Thanks!
