In 1955, the millionth Beetle rolled off the assembly line, proving that along with its practical purpose, it had become an institution in both the United States and Europe. It had its own cult following and one of the largest automotive enthusiasts communities in the world.

In 1948, coachbuilder Karmann began offering conversions from sedan to drop top, with production of the convertible starting in 1949. Over the next 31 years, over 330,000 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible were built.

This particular example has been given a recent four-year nut-and-bolt restoration. It is finished in bright red with a tan Stayfast top and leather interior. It rides on its original red wheels with contrasting chrome hubcaps and carries Wolfsburg bumpers. The interior is done in two-tone gray and tan, with German square weave carpeting and custom steering wheel. A date-coded 1964 Blaupunkt AM/FM radio is located in the dashboard.
