This Auto Red Bug is the second oldest Red Bug in existence and has
just had a complete and total restoration performed, which was
completed in early 2019. This Red Bug has been part of a private
collection for some time, but was an older restoration, probably
done in the 1950s. The restoration took the better part of a year,
and it was done to a very high and historically correct standard.
Every aspect of the Red Bug was restored, re-plated,
re-upholstered, and re-painted and polished as it left the factory.
A lot of research time went into the restoration to ensure
everything was done correctly, mostly due to the assistance of the
renown Red Bug expert, Jed Rapoport. The red paint is the exact
color and hue the Red Bug was painted when new. The brightwork is
correctly plated in nickel. The seat is upholstered in the correct
material and padded with correct horsehair, just the way it was
done at the factory. The wood slats are the exact wood used when
new. The Red Bug runs perfectly, steers the way it should, and
stops the way it should. The condition is exactly what it looks
like in the photos. *Please note Title is listed as clear because
eBay would not take a bill of sale listing. Due to the fact Auto
Red Bugs have no VIN and thus are not licensed to travel on public
roads, it is being sold with a bill of sale only. Fun Facts:
