BBT is Split window beetle walhalla!
When we could strike this deal to buy these 4 split window beetles at once we hardly blinked an eye! We took our time, made sure seller was happy and felt the joy growing right in our stomach… these baby’s would come home… what started in April this year is ready now… enjoy our story!
Ever dreamed of a split window line up? All are complete and driving condition cars!!
Ready for transport now!
It seems as they say… we’re ready, we like to make more kilometers, even if where old, we’re not survived to sit! Give us that road, give us that stretch of concrete, we can proof we’re not tired yet!…. release us from our stables and we provide You all joy You can stand…and more…
ok, let’s start loading! All cozy on one truck! Travelling together is so much more fun! Don’t You think?
Unloading the truck was a blast!
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?
Not THIS picture!!!! What You think you’re doing there?????
Let’s start that picture shoot, one by one now! Nothing better to enjoy our new toys intensely…..
June 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…
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!!!
No 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!
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….
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! This 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!
Looks 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… Ready 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…
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…
Did we catched your interested? Are You interested to see more?
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….
