Convertible Sedan
Chassis #: 558 5068
Sold for $22,000 at 2008 Automobiles of Amelia Island, RM Auctions.
'Volks Wagen' means 'People's Car', has been in existence even before the Second World War. The purpose of the company was to make cars for the people; specifically, to create a car that could carry two adults and three children at speeds of 100 km/hr and could be purchased for 900 Reichmarks. It was to be simple yet reliable; functional yet inexpensive. The Beetle, commonly known as the 'Bug', easily met these expectations.

This example has been restored during the 1990s and has traveled just 4000 miles since that time. It is equipped with chromed bumper guards, rear fender stone shields, headlight 'eyebrows', sheepskin seat covers, and wide whitewall tires.

In 2008 this 1963 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $18,000 - $22,000. It was offered without reserve and sold for a high bid of $22,000.
