1945 Volkswagen Type 51 Beetle
Here is a one-of-a-kind chance to own this extremely early, rare, and historically significant Beetle. Built in November 1945, just two months after the end of WWII, this is a very rare Typ/Series 51. Based on the Kublewagen, the car is 75mm higher than standard and was built when the British army controlled the VW factory. Finished in the original flat black, this early Beetle has just completed a full restoration performed by a highly regarded South Australian body specialist working with the original panels. This is a unique opportunity to get an extremely early production Beetle, the "great grandfather” of one of the most iconic and loved vehicles in automotive history.
