DSC06121_blog I just love the different angles… this picture shows You the simple design… forget Art Deco, Art nouveau and all that other glamour stuff, here functionality before everything… can we call this style with a certain influence from the Bauhaus movement?

Let’s start that picture shoot, one by one now! Nothing better to enjoy our new toys intensely…..

DSC_0465_blogJune 1951 Build split window beetle is (as all other three) a very very old repaint. the expression of the car is drooling beyond any point! The right amount of patina to make even the most fervent restoration freak turn around…

DSC06125_blogInside the car sports an original interior, and a more than decent headliner… even your wife wouldn’t mind to take a drive along in this patina car!

DSC06139_blog

Sporting Ribbed bumpers and moldings, round wipers, full ft hood logo, OG fenders, taillight and headlight, 16′ wheels and the list goes on…  this was a parts car actually since 1963!!!

DSC06135_blogNo we do not save the best for last, but present it to You as a second… Build in Aug 1951 if You’re into OG interiors this is the best split in the WORLD! money can buy….  One repaint, this paint was applied in 1976 in the slightly wrong color of Golf-blue….paint is little too shiny maybe, but the entire car present well!

 

DSC06162_blog Ribbed bumpers and moldings, round wipers, full ft hood logo, OG fenders, taillight and headlight, 16′ wheels and the list goes on.  The originality in parts of this car is large to say at least. also sports a OG 25HP engine fed by a 26VFIS carb….

DSC06168_blog As said before, the quality of the OG interior is above all imagination, imagine…. almost 65 years of age!

DSC06169_blog Is this my personal favorite? Black does suits a Split window beetle for sure very well… Black patina even better! Build in Jan.1951 this is a real survivor! DSC06203_blogThis is a very very old repaint, more than likely from the very early fifties…  but very well done… I like especially the look of this car! Nice and scruffy, but still presentable, the exact right dose we need for a nice patina car!

DSC06206_blog This baby is as complete as the two above but is sitting on 15 inch wheels, 16-inch wheels, however, are coming along inside the car…. now, how do you like this look?

DSC06210_blogLast but not least… the oldest of the pack…  Sept 1950 build this car will not retire at 65 years of age, that’s for sure!

DSC06247_blogLooks good and is most economical priced of the pack, but is slightly less original, one OG fender, other ones are also OG but from later models, and a couple of other things make this car stands out to the down side, but as said this  reflects in the price… DSC06253_blogReady to look life through the Ft windshield of a split?  Grab your change! All 4 splits are drivers and will be sold individually to the first buyer that steps up…

DSC06260_blog Endless beautiful… and all for sale…

DSC_0271_blog All 4 are running and driving cars… 3 do have a 30DIN (that’s 36 SAE) HP engines installed, mainly with correct 25HP outfit, these three have all of them a 25HP core engine inside the car, the Light blue car that has a 25hp engine installed don’t has a spare engine coming along…

Pick your favorite and email to Bob@BBT4vw.com with all of your questions, for extra High resolution pictures and /or for pricing…

I will try to respond as soon as I can….:)

Again, all this Gem’s are in driving and braking condition, and could be driven… for those unexperienced ones however a small warning… a split is an old car, call it a little antique maybe… stop dreaming to use these cars as daily drivers, the nostalgic side of this cars is immense at large, but safety today is slightly different as roughly 60 years ago…

Sweet dreams now….
