The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses vehicle just as Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government: to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” translated as the “Strength through Joy Car.”

After WWII, the now British controlled VW Factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in VW producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported VW’s caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change America's fascination with the “Bug.”

The 1957 Volkswagen Oval Window Beetle featured here is finished in gorgeous Prairie Beige with a beautiful red interior. This exceptional example (manufactured during the last production year for the Oval Window) is equipped with many options including roof rack, bamboo parril tray, driver & passenger’s green tinted sunvisors, Motorola Volumatic AM Radio, and much more. Accompanying this investment-grade Beetle is its owner’s manual, workshop manual, restoration and maintenance manuals, as well as restoration receipts. We are proud to offer one of the best Volkwagen Beetles on the market today to the most particular collector or enthusiast who appreciates superior condition.
