Oval Window Ragtop: 1957 VW Beetle

1957 VW Beetle Ragtop

For a car that was designed and built to be affordable basic transportation, it’s amazing how beloved the Beetle is. While the vast majority are still affordable, the earlier examples can fetch big bucks. This one isn’t the most desirable split window design, but the oval window is still in demand. It’s a nice little car that’s showing a nice patina and a sweet ragtop. The seller admits it had one respray years ago and that the interior was redone, but claims everything else is original and in great shape. It sure looks nice and would be fun to have! You can take a closer look at it here on eBay in Simi Valley, California with a high bid of $12k and no reserve. So how do you feel about the patina on this one?

    “Everything else is original”? Repaint, the interior was redone, and it sports a later, non-OG engine. What’s left?
