Patina monster: 1955 Volkswagen Bug


We know that this is a hopeless project, but we couldn’t resist to such patina. This car is said to come from a southern California backyard, and it’s not hard to believe it. We wonder if they checked if some hen is still crouching under the front seats.


The seller says that this car comes with a ton of parts, including the matching number engine, which obviously needs to be rebuilt. Actually this car seems much worse than what it really is: the floors seem solid and the whole car seems not abused.


The same is true for the interiors: the dash is not cut and everything is where you’d expect it to be. In our opinion: just rebuid engine, transmission, fuel system and brakes and you’ll have a trophy winner whatever concours you’ll join. Find it for sale at $3,750 or near offer here at, CA.
