The classic Volkswagen Type 1 was created by Ferdinand Porsche and his team in Wolfsburg, Germany. Production lasted from 1938 to 2003 with more than an estimated 21 million examples built worldwide, making it one of the best-selling cars of all time.

This particular example was the recipient of a nut-and-bolt ground-up restoration. It was original sold in Belgium in 1955and remained there until 1968 when it was shipped to New York and kept as a daily driver for many years until the owner gifted it to his grandson, who shipped the car to Los Angles in the 1980s. West Coast Classic Restorations purchased the car and had it completely restored. After the restoration, it was purchased by Gunther Volkswagen in Florida, the largest Volkswagen dealer in the country. The car was put on display by the Gunther Collection for several years before coming into the care of its current owner.

This Volkswagen Oval Window Type 1 is finished in Polar Silver with the original German style red leatherette interior, German mohair carpets, and headliner. It is a Deluxe model with chrome body side moldings and chrome dash trim and includes the Volkswagen tool kit and original jack. Since it is a European market car, it has the Euro front and rear bumpers and the semaphore lighted turn signals. Power is from a single port 1,192cc motor offering 36 horsepower and mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
