Form and Function: 1949 Volkswagen Bug


Wherever you turn your head you could easily spot a VW Bug, as millions have been produced from 1938 so far. But, you can’t easily spot a pre-’50’s Bug. This car is very rare to find and so, as the asking price suggests, this rarity must be paid.


The seller says few about this particular car, but it jumps to eyes that everything on this car is strictly oriented to the function it was built for. Interiors are way more than “simple”: however, this simplicity is quite fascinating.


The engine bay is light years far from what we can see under our modern cars bonnet. The seller doesn’t mention anything about the correctness of the engine/transmission; it would be a great added value if these units were original. Find this car for sale at a huge €40,000 (today $51,000) here in Trezzano Sul Naviglio, Italy.
