1955 Vw Volkswagon Bug Oval Window Sun Roof Three Fold Ragtop on 2040-cars

1955 VW ragtop bug. The car is not a frame off restoration. I would put it at a driver quality paint job, with a few blimishes (still very eye catching). The bug is not an original ragtop, but has a three fold top in it now. I bought it from a guy who had the work done for the top. The interior is pretty nice, with a new headliner. Great looking front mirrors. The under hood area was painted black when I got the bug and needs the cover for the back of the dash. The nose is not all rusted out, but has been crunched up in the last 59 years. The heater channel does have some small holes in it, but overhaul the floor is in decent shape. One floor board has been changed out in the past. When I got it, the car had all new seals in the windows and doors, also on the trunk and hood. I have the radio face for the car. The car has pretty new tires. All the glass is original to the car. 

I am no VW specialist by any means. If you have any questions, please ask them before bidding. I can take more pictures if needed. 

Again, this in not a show car or frame off restoration, BUT it is a very cool nice looking car that needs a little here and there. Fun to drive with the top open. 

If you have "0" feedback, please NO NOT bid until you contact me through eBay first. 

Thanks and happy bidding.

It looks like the pan and the body's vin both match.

The rear of the car has the correct "H" panel. I tried to add a picture, but was not allowed to

Volkswagen reveals Beetle GSR, R-Line convertible and two special GTIs

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 01:01:00 EST

Volkswagen has chosen to really expand its performance-tuned portfolio at this year's Chicago Auto Show, bringing along a couple of new Beetles destined for model year 2014, as well as a pair of freshened GTI packages that you'll be able to buy almost right away.
The first, and splashiest of the Chicago goodies on the VW stand has got to be the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR. Don't lose your temper, Acura Integra geeks; in this case, GSR stands for "Gelb Schwarzer Renner" or "Yellow Black Racer," and harkens back to a sport-tuned classic Beetle from the 1970s. For the 2014 iteration, the GSR gets a 210-horsepower version of VW's 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. That engine is enough to push the Beetle to 60 miles per hour in 6.6 seconds, and up to a top speed of 130 mph.
Of course, you'll have long-since noticed the shockingly yellow-and-black livery before you stumble across the Turbo badge on the rear deck. The GSR gets 19-inch alloy wheels, 235-section tires and a tea-tray rear spoiler, but it's the paint and graphics package that will decide if this is your (lemony) cup of tea. Things don't get any subtler inside the car, either, as VW has carried the colorway through to the interior, as well. Only 3,500 Beetle GSRs will be produced, with just more than half of those going to the US - call your dealer today, Wiz Khalifa.

Volkswagen shows off performance-ish Passat concept

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 17:57:00 EST

As part of its 2013 Detroit Auto Show debut package, Volkswagen has rolled out a sportier version of the Passat sedan, though it's strictly conceptual for now. A small dose of go-fast visuals have been added to the handsome Volkswagen, including 19-inch wheels, carbon-capped mirrors, an advanced front lighting system, LED taillamps and dual exhaust. Some carbon bits and upgraded leather are found inside the cabin, as well.
But the real performance chops come in the form of a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sends 250 horsepower to the Passat's front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. That's a good boost in power over the 170 hp of the base 2.5-liter inline-five, but not quite as potent as the 3.6-liter VR6. A lowered sport suspension and revised electronic steering are also on hand, making things slightly more involving out on the road... we assume.
It's not quite the performance concept we were hoping for, but a more enthusiastic Passat isn't necessarily a bad thing. Scroll down for the press release.

VW Up Buggy may be headed to showrooms

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 11:29:00 EST

Volkswagen showed six conceptual takes on its Up at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, one of those being the Up Buggy. Although few will probably remember it, VW has not forgotten it, applying for a patent for the Meyers Manx revival roadster way back in March 2012 and being approved in June of this year, according to a report in Autocar. That will give the automaker a 14-year lock on the design while it decides whether to move forward with a reboot of its past.
A patent doesn't mean the Up Buggy will ever move beyond the sheet-of-paper stage, but Autocar says VW is studying the market to see if a production version is feasible. We can't see North America ever getting it, but even so, we wouldn't complain if they made it - especially if they put an exposed engine in back that was set off by 18-inch-long twin tailpipes jutting straight up into the air. However, for a company that aims to be the world's number-one automaker by 2018, a niche vehicle for its mass-market brand would be a surprising use of resources.
