1953 Volkswagen Beetle Oval Window

Correct, Uniquely Rare and Wonderfully Presented! These hard to find Beetles are known as the most desirable and lowest production of all oval-window model years, as they shared many features with the same year "Zwitter" split window. After March 10th 1953, the split window became the one-piece oval. This very special "First Year" Oval Window Beetle is resting on a well preserved professional quality ground-up restoration performed to original standards, over the past several years it has received a very respectful once-over, updates and interior refresh.
