This Volkswagen was built in late 1959 and was dispatched to America that same year. During its lifetime, the car has been treated to a quality restoration. This Cabriolet has proper period details such as the two-spoke steering wheel, push-button radio, proper one-gauge instrument panel and an optional mesh front storage shelf. The car is painted in Mango Green paint, and has a tan vinyl upholstery. There are also fog lamps and whitewall tires.
In 2011, this Beetle 1200 Cabriolet was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. It was estimated to sell for $30,000 - $40,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $35,750, inclusive of buyer's premium.
