Description
 
VIN: -1-0548477 Superb condition both mechanically and cosmetically. Initially called the Porsche 60 by Ferdinand Porsche, the car was officially named the KdF-Wagen by Hitler when the project was launched. The name refers to Kraft durch Freude ('Strength Through Joy'), the official leisure organization in the Third Reich. It was later known as the Volkswagen Type 1, but became more commonly known as the Beetle. During the 1950s, the car was modified progressively: the obvious visual changes mostly concerned the windows. In March 1953, the rear windscreen of the VW Beetle lost the "bar" in the center and as a result has been referred to as the "oval" beetle. Arguably, the oval beetle is perceived to represent the peak in quality of manufacture: for example, the grade and thickness of steel for the body shell was of the highest quality. Another example is the "Wolfsburg" crest on the front of the bonnet (or tailgate) was of the highest quality. This 1953 Volkswagen Beetle is probably one of the best in the world.
