Purchased several years ago from the reported second owner, this rust free, originally Ziebarted low miles car was sent to Louis Restorations in Salem, Mass and completely taken apart and received a $20K concours quality refinish in the original Diamond Silver factory color, the original bumpers were sent out for triple chrome plating and sealed on the rear with epoxy. The car also received a new $3K Haartz Cloth Stay Fast mult-layer convertible top. At this time the car received a complete mechanical refresh including all new brakes with four new high quality German brake drums. A new Sony sound system has been installed but the car comes the original radio.

This car was invited to and shown at the Misselwood Concours d'Elegance and is one of only 100 of the finest classic cars to be invited and displayed at the prestigious Boston Cup plus was the feature car at the Bunker Hill Day Parade, the oldest parade in America. This Volkswagen appears and runs as new and is ready to drive, to show, or to be part of a private collection.
