1951 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE Split window Sedan - €Auction

  • 81714 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:40,000 - 60,000 Rare and desirable early Split-Window Type 1 BeetleMeticulously restored, an ideal first-time collector car A true pop icon and one of the most important automobiles of the 20th century, the VW Beetle was a masterpiece of practicality, reliability, and affordability. Its rear-mounted, air-cooled engine allowed for more interior space due to the absence of a driveshaft and liquid-cooling system; it never overheated in hot temperatures and never froze in colder climates. Since post-war production commenced in Wolfsburg more than 70 years ago, the Beetle has become a true collectors item, and early examples are highly sought after by todays enthusiasts. This desirable and early 1951 Split-Window example is well restored and correct in many details, featuring the original crotch coolers and the correct cloth interior. Ready to drive and enjoy, this pop icon is ready to take on the road.Raro e desejável Carocha Split-Window Type 1Restaurado ao pormenor ideal como primeiro veículo de coleçãoUm verdadeiro ícone da cultura popular e um dos automóveis mais importantes do século XX, o VW Carocha era uma obra-prima de utilidade, fiabilidade e acessibilidade. O seu motor refrigerado a ar e montado atrás do eixo traseiro permitia maior espaço no interior, graças à ausência de veio de transmissão e do circuito líquido de refrigeração; não aquecia mesmo em dias mais quentes e nunca congelava nos climas mais rigorosos. Desde que a produção se iniciou em Wolfsburg após o final da II Guerra, há mais de 70 anos o carocha tornou-se um verdadeiro objeto de coleção e os exemplares mais antigos são muito desejados pelos entusiastas.Este cobiçado Split Window de 1951 está bem restaurado e correto em muitos dos seus detalhes, mostrando as suas entradas de ar laterais à frente das portas e o interior no tecido certo, pormenores específicos dos VW deste período. Pronto a ser conduzido e apreciado, este ícone pop está apto a sair de imediato para a estrada.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
