Volkswagen Typ 11 (Beetle)

The idea for a “Volkswagen” (car for the people) was widespread in the 1930s: Opel had the P4 and the Opel Olympia. But both were too expensive for most people. So Ferdinand Porsche was asked to develop a “Volkswagen”: room for 4 passengers, max. 100 km/h speed and the ability to master a 30% climb. The first driveable prototype was done in February 1936 but all future plans were put on hold due to the war. But with the support of the forward thinking British Major Ivan Hirst production began in December 1945 and the rest is history! By 1955 1 million “Beetle” had been produced!

Our VW “Beetle” was registered in Peine/Germany on April 22, 1958 and has been with its current owner since 1984. This classic is really in good condition. Its original folding sunroof truly stands out and 1958 was also the first year with enlarged rear windows. An early “Beelte” like this, with a detailed history and in good condition is a rarity!

BMW 501 V8

For BMW, the break at the end of the Second World War was particularly harsh: The car plant in Eisenach was lost, and the plant in Munich was largely dismantled. Nevertheless, the automobile industry was reorganized in Munich in 1951/52. Unfortunately, BMW could hardly make money with the Isetta on the one hand and the big luxury saloons on the other. It was the small but modern BMW 700 that saved the company in the end. With the “new class” BMW returned to success in 1962. The BMW 501 with the six-cylinder engine was the first post-war construction: superbly engineered suspension, conservative but solid bodywork and an engine developed from the pre-war BMW 326. The BMW 501 with the newly developed V8 aluminum engine (2.6-liter displacement) closed the gap between the six-cylinder and the more opulent equipped 502 model.

Our BMW 501 V8 was built on December 18th 1958 and not registered until 28.03.1960 because of non-acceptance. The buyer was from Pforzheim (Germany). This noble sedan with gray paint and dark green leather is very elegant, with a mileage of only 70,000 km, which appears probable.

Bentley S 1

The Bentley S 1 was the long-awaited successor to the Bentley MK VI and R-Type. Bentley retained the high-torque, robust and reliable six-cylinder engine amd paired this with an automatic transmission. With revised brakes, suspension and power steering, luxurious driving and travel was redefined. The body resting on the frame grew in size and gave the series its classic and prestigious appearance. Unlike the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, however, this Bentley appeared a bit sporty and restrained. Because of its solid engineering, the more fuel-efficient early Bentley and Rolls-Royce models of this series are particularly popular today.

This late, left-steered Bentley S1 was delivered as a new car to the United States. The saloon was restored a long time ago and rarely but regularly moved ever since. Slightly patinated in the interior but with new leather, the classic car in this color combination still looks gigantic and can be moved remarkably light-footed. You’ll rarely get a more luxurious and charismatic car at a more attractive price than this.
