This is one of the first rear engine cars. With over 21 million manufactured in an air cooled, rear engine, rear wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest running and most manufactured on a single design platform worldwide. It is powered by a 1200cc engine with a manual 4 speed transmission. Our example is a very rare true German Beryl Green rag top Beetle. It is said to have the original floors and only one repaint to it's credit. Great little fun gas saver!
