"It is on a 1957 pan so it is titled as a 1957 based on Colorado law."

I'd say it's titled as a '57 because it is a '57... body and pan... with a bar splitting the original oval window.

Butt dimples. I think that's a fetish for some people but probably not on cars

The Mickey Mouse clock is terrific stuff ! Cool

yeah that 50 split is funky. seat bases are late type, but rear torsion bar housing appears to be split ( shock mounts added). the rear apron doesn't even have a crank hole.

Is it me or does that rear window look like an oval window with a divider added?

Oval window with split dash grafted in or a real split that had the window cut out and all they could find to fix it with was an oval window clip?

hmmm, those vent slots seem to follow the window curve too closely like an oval, whereas on a split there is a larger gap towards the outer ones (see below) car also has single exhaust cut out in valence?

'super solid car with minimal rust' Confused
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2386740

my idea of a super solid car is one where I can't see my feet, or the pedals, when i look under the bonnet

Nice handle, but I thought 52s had a g handle, not an SG? Flat where the key enters, not recessed like this version

Logo looks correct for '54-'55 but the not for '52 or '53.
