Here is my mostly original factory paint June of 1955 Deluxe Sunroof Beetle named "Martha". The VW Siftung Automuseum "birth certificate" letter states that it is Nile Beige. The drivers door below the trim and three of the four fenders were re-painted in 1960 by Thornton VW dealership for the original owner, all other panels are still factory original paint.

I hate to pick a favorite, but that Dolomite Cabrio is wonderful to look at.

We can't show you too much of it yet, but here is L225 Jupiter grey emerging on our recent purchase:

I never bother with the stupid "Img" button -- I just paste the link, and add the [img] and [/img] tags around it manually. It's foolproof, or nearly so. Wink


That's what I used to do..............but for some reason my computer will not follow that command anymore. Confused

My first oval was just like that - but not as high scoring in the originality department.

My latest oval - L41 which scores 0 in the originality stakes, due to 2165cc, Pedrinis, and IRS.........

My 55 Vert in Dolomite L279
Has anyone seen a whole car in this color? If so, I would love to see pictures.
It was a "vert only" color for 54 and early 55.
