Faded: 1951 Volkswagen Bug


Faded is the paint of this 1951 Bug, but these cars are more fascinating just when they show a tired look. This car has also a couple of big rear tires which give it an almost “Baja” look.


The seller provides few photos but we see that some details (and not only) are not correct, beginning from the late series wheels. However, the dashboard is how you’d expect it to be. Corduroy trimmed interiors seem in good shape.


A strange thing is that there are two different steering wheels in two different photos. We believe that the black one is not correct as it belongs to a previous model year. This car need to be deeply inspected as the more are the defects, the less must be the deal price. Find it for sale at €18,000 (today $23,000) here in Tolouse, France.
