The VW “Beetle”, a design by Ferdinand Porsche in the mid-1930s, was a post-war success of unimagined dimension. Heinrich Nordhoff, then general manager of the Volkswagen factory, had the product continuously improved and recognised the might of a perfect VW service network. The export of the car, a global success, began in August 1947. From March 1953 the oval rear window was introduced, the so-called “pretzel” was a thing of the past. From January 1954, the engine was available with 22 kW/30 hp. From now on, the car is considered suitable for everyday use.
Our Volkswagen Type 11 Limousine (“Ovali”) was registered in the district of Beckum/Germany on 08 November 1954. The classic car is completely original, except for the paintwork, which was once renewed in its original colour. In addition, the “Beetle” is equipped with very rare slipcovers for the seats, which could be ordered from the factory. The original fabric underneath is flawless. The mileage of 29,000 km is plausible considering the condition of the car. There is only one entry in the original cardboard motor vehicle registration certificate! This classic brings back memories of childhood for many people.
