Vehicle Description

1961 Volkswagen Beetle Coupe

Why It Is Special

The Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, is a two-door, five-passenger, rear-engine economy car that was manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen.

The originating concept behind the first Volkswagen, the company, and its name, is the notion of a people's car, a car affordable and practical enough for common people to own. Hence the name, which is literally "people's car" in German.

We have a mint condition, ultra rare, 1961 Wolfsburg edition rag top Beetle with only 47k miles.

It has the original German glass, a 1200cc engine, and is fully restored including a disc brake conversion, and a 4 Speed Manual transmission.
