    Are those ashtray and knob labels on the dash factory or some tongue-in-cheek stickers from the ’60s? “Das Schmoken Dunker” too funny

      I remember them well from the JC Whitney catalog!

      Given Volkswagen’s whimsical, self-deprecating marketing of the day, it would not surprise me if they were both tongue-in-cheek AND factory.

      “Der Putter Sparken” is one I always liked.

      Maybe those cigarette butts are why there’s an estate sale today?

    Did VWs have gas gauges in ‘58?

      58s did not have a gas gauge.
      That is a Dehne accessory aftermarket gas gauge.

        The ’58 had a foot lever on the floor that opened a valve to the reserve tank once you ran out of gas in the main tank (while driving.)

    My late Dad had a blue ’58 back in the day.

      Yes it was.

      Karmann convertibles kept the oval a while longer….a lot longer. I don’t think it went away on Cabriolets until the mid-60’s. Probably had everything to do with the way those tops were assembled… like Carson custom tops of the day for us ‘Muricans.

    This will be worth a lot restored.
