Sedan
Chassis #: 1-0499753
Engine #: 1-0584612
Sold for $24,200 at 2009 Automobiles of Amelia Island.
This 1953 Volkswagen Beetle has been driven less than 31,000 kilometers from new. It was once part of a German museum collection and is a very early oval-window example with a period correct roof-mounted luggage rack and period luggage with zippered protective luggage covers. Though it does not have its original engine, it does house a correct replacement that displaces 1192cc and produces 36 horsepower from its air-cooled four-cylinder unit.

This car has been given a repaint since new, finished in its original Sahara beige and includes European specification headlights and turn signals, a driver's side rearview mirror, semaphores, the original glass and windshield, taillights, pop-out rear quarter windows, and two-tone painted steel wheels with bright hubcaps. The interior is tan cloth upholstery and there is a Petri banjo-type steering wheel.

In 2009, this Corvette powered Roadster was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $15,000 - $25,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for $22,000, not including buyer's premium.
