Sedan
Chassis #: 1473718
Sold for $18,150 at 2018 Barrett-Jackson : Scottsdale.
Sold for $30,800 at 2018 Worldwide Auctioneers : Pacific Grove Auction.
The Oval Window Beetles were built from 1953 through 1957. They had classic features, longer gear ratios, a new brake pedal deign, and larger oil galleries in the engine which helped improved performance.

This particular example is a Euro-Beetle finished in bright red, a color never offered for the United States market. It is equipped with rare semaphore articulated turn signals and Euro-spec bumpers. It rides on factory steel wheels and whitewall tires. The engine has been updated to a single-port 1983cc flat four engine offering 54 horsepower and is mated to a four-speed synchronized manual gearbox. The original 6-volt system is in place. The entire interior has been replaced by the correct Euro carpets and fabrics, and a correct tan dot cloth interior.
