Convertible Sedan
Chassis #: 1371341
Engine # 1648450
Sold for $33,000 at 2016 RM Sotheby's : Motor City.
In 1957, Volkswagen produced 380,561 examples of the Beetle, including 8,196 cabriolets. This particular example was ordered new by Herbert Haskell in October of 1956. It was completed by teh factory on 10 December, and shipped stateside via the SS Ludwigsburg, where it arrived at the Port of Charleston, South Carolina, on 29 January 1957. The car was kept at the Haskell's summer home in New Hampshire and drove it sparingly over the next three decades.

With 37,000 miles on the odometer, it was sold at the Haskells' estate sale on October 17th of 1987 to Gordon Davis. Mr. Davis retained the original Beetle for nearly a decade when it was sold to Rocco Graziano of Vermont in 1996. It was acquired several years later by the current owner from Scott Doering in Colorado.

This car has been repainted in its original Inca Red in the late 1960s. The tires and top were later replaced. Power is from a 1192cc overhead valve air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine with a single downdraft Solex carburetor. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
