This Beetle Cabriolet, which underwent a complete body-off restoration, has had only one owner, or, to be more precise, its ownership has always been with the same family. The former owner bought the car in 1961 from the Volkswagen dealer in Trelleborg, Sweden. In 1978 the car was painted yellow, because the son had a Shell petrol station and he used the beetle as a promotional car. At some point, the son acquired a Honda car dealership and the beetle ended up in a corner of the workshop. There was no more use for the beetle, but the family could not bring themselves to separate from the car. It was not until 2015 when it was decided to sell the car, which by then needed a thorough restoration. A Dutch car aficionado became the new owner. He decided to have the car restored. This job was completed just recently. In the restoration, no expense was spared. Original parts were used wherever possible and were sent for from around the world. The body was sprayed Jupiter Grey (L225). This was not the car’s original colour but it is a colour that was available at the time the car was built. The interior is done in Altrot (upholstery no 235). The interior and exterior colours produce a lovely combination. It almost goes without saying that the cost of bringing this Beetle Convertible into its present state exceeds the current asking price by far.
