To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Essen event, 24 - 27 June 2020. Rare and desirable early Split-Window Type 1 BeetleDesirable black-over-grey-cloth colour schemeMeticulously 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.Seltener und gesuchter früher Typ 1 BrezelkäferAttraktive Farbkombination von schwarzem Lack und grauem InnenraumAkribisch restauriert, ein idealer Kandidat für einen Einstieg in das Sammler-HobbyDer VW Käfer ist eine echte Pop-Ikone und eines der wichtigsten Automobile des 20. Jahrhunderts. Er ist ein Meisterstück an Zweckmäßigkeit, Zuverlässigkeit und Preiswürdigkeit. Der luftgekühlte Heckmotor machte wegen des Wegfalls von Kardanwelle und Wasserkühlung einen viel größeren Innenraum möglich. Er überhitzte nicht in heißen Regionen und fror nicht fest im Winter. Nach der Wiederaufnahme der Produktion nach dem Krieg vor mehr als 70 Jahren wurde der Käfer mittlerweile zu einem echten Sammlerstück, und insbesondere sehr frühe Exemplare werden heute von VW-Liebhabern gesucht. Diese begehrte und frühe 1951er Limousine mit geteilter Heckscheibe (Brezelkäfer) wurde sehr gut und in einer Vielzahl von Details korrekt restauriert. Dazu gehören auch die originalen Frischlufteinlässe für das Jahr 1951 und das korrekte Stoffmaterial im Innenraum. Diese Pop-Ikone ist bereit zum Fahren und Genießen.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/es20.
