Today we have an absolutely original 1958 Beetle for sale.
1958 was the first of the large window, with the Oval window finishing its 4 year run in 1957. Many Beetle enthusiast see the 50's Beetle as the most authentic shape of the Beetle, with values dratically increasing over the last 2 - 3 years.
This particular 58', presents extremely well, her interior is clean and original, she has a period correct radio, two tone seat combination with ivory accented gear knob, steering wheel, dash knobs and hand brake.
She was painted many years ago, but her colour still holds it's full vibrance in a charismatic way that is infectious to the soul, it will make you look past the few minor flaws she holds.
She has her original 1100 motor, running just as crisp as the day she left the factory and still runs on her original 6 volt system. This is clearly a well maintained vehicle, she starts on the quarter, and if for some reason you were not sold yet, all you have to do is take her for a drive. Everything about the drive feels like new, there is no play on the linkages, she tracks her gears correctly, clutch feel delicate and smooth, a touch of the throttle brings her gentle perkyness to life. Her brake feel solid and affirmed under use, Her steering pricise and easy with no confusion.
If you ever wanted to own an early Beetle, this is your car. At half the price of an Oval, and R50 000 below her worth, she will be snapped up.
