  • Rare and desirable early 'Split-Window' Type 1 Beetle
  • Meticulously restored, an ideal first-time collector car


A true pop icon and one of the most important automobiles of the 20th century, the VW Beetle was a masterpiece of practicality, reliability, and affordability. Its rear-mounted, air-cooled engine allowed for more interior space due to the absence of a driveshaft and liquid-cooling system; it never overheated in hot temperatures and never froze in colder climates. Since post-war production commenced in Wolfsburg more than 70 years ago, the Beetle has become a true collector's item, and early examples are highly sought after by today's enthusiasts.

This desirable and early 1951 'Split-Window' example is well restored and correct in many details, featuring the original 'crotch coolers' and the correct cloth interior. Ready to drive and enjoy, this pop icon is ready to take on the road.



  • Raro e desej�vel "Carocha" 'Split-Window' Type 1

  • Restaurado ao pormenor ideal como primeiro ve�culo de cole��o


Um verdadeiro �cone da cultura popular e um dos autom�veis mais importantes do s�culo XX, o VW "Carocha" era uma obra-prima de utilidade, fiabilidade e acessibilidade. O seu motor refrigerado a ar e montado atr�s do eixo traseiro permitia maior espa�o no interior, gra�as � aus�ncia de veio de transmiss�o e do circuito l�quido de refrigera��o; n�o aquecia mesmo em dias mais quentes e nunca congelava nos climas mais rigorosos. Desde que a produ��o se iniciou em Wolfsburg � ap�s o final da II Guerra, h� mais de 70 anos � o "carocha" tornou-se um verdadeiro objeto de cole��o e os exemplares mais antigos s�o muito desejados pelos entusiastas.

Este cobi�ado 'Split Window' de 1951 est� bem restaurado e correto em muitos dos seus detalhes, mostrando as suas entradas de ar laterais � frente das portas e o interior no tecido certo, pormenores espec�ficos dos VW deste per�odo. Pronto a ser conduzido e apreciado, este �cone pop est� apto a sair de imediato para a estrada.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
