Nice find, congrats! Applause
Especially when they come with some very cool accoutrements such as the original dealership badge and an Eberspacher. That front apron is WOW!

Love the super-tight hood lines, doesn't look like it's ever plowed anything.

Yeah I took out the heater. And Afaik it's all straight except for bottom of rear fenders. Not much rust. The plan is to get it running and driving.

The shifter was totally loose, looks like something in the nosecone.

For being a Saskatchewan, Canada originating car, it certainly seems to lack the 'usual' rust of a 61 year old 'Canadian Rust Belt' vehicle!! Grenfell, SK currently has a population of about 1,000 ...it was likely a bit larger back in 1958. Many small towns had VW dealers back in the day, usually as an add-on to a farm implement dealership, or to full service (with mechanic on duty) gas station. Where I'm originally from in Sask, our local VW dealer was a Shell gas station.

Wow, very cool car congrats! Shocked

Other than making it a driver, what are the plans?

By the way, coral is a killer color, and even though its a repaint, it may come back to life with some TLC.

Cool

Grenfell, SK is only about 100 miles from me (as the crow flies ..or about 150 miles if you're rolling a flat tire, or carrying an empty gas can!!) ..its on the Trans Canada Highway, just east of the province's capital city. Be interesting to know how the car ended up out west, and in the USA.

I'm in Edmonton, Alberta 😊 My buddy bought it this summer and he has too many projects, so he passed it to me. I'm hoping to get it running before winter.
