Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your hats! What we have here is what is certainly one of the nicest and well-built early Beetles available on the market. Originally developed and introduced in the late 1930s, the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most popular and longest produced vehicles of all time. Though they aren\'t for everyone, most find themselves smiling when they spot a classic Beetle! There\'s just something about this little cars that tends to evoke happy feelings. In 1953, the split rear window design had been abandoned in favor of the oval rear window design seen here on this 1956. Believe it or not, the Beetle remained so popular over the years that it was in production until 2003! Though it had seen many design and mechanical changes over the years, the final Beetles stuck to the original concept and retained many original elements. This 1956 ragtop oval window Beetle has been fully and completely restored back to factory original specifications. The exterior is immaculate, and the red/black two-tone really does a lot for this car. According to the owner, nearly $20,000 was spent on the paint job a lone...which really speaks to the quality of the paint! In our showroom, hardly a day goes by that someone doesn\'t comment on how beautiful and nicely done this Beetle is. This is a show-quality vehicle that is destined to be the centerpiece of any serious VW collection! A new ragtop has been installed, and functions just the way it should. Aside from the high-quality paint job, you\'ll find that every exterior component has been repaired or replaced to as-new or better condition. If it was available New Old Stock (NOS) at the time of the restoration, it was purchased and installed on this car. Even NOS Dunlop tires have been installed! If you think the exterior of this Beetle is a work of art, wait until you see the interior! Finished in a gorgeous red, you\'d think you were sitting in a 1950s VW brochure-that\'s how clean and correct this interior is. With less than 50 miles covered since the restoration, it is no wonder that the interior looks as if it has never been sat in. Every little detail has been addressed, and all of the parts look brand new-this is not a restoration where old parts were simply cleaned up and reinstalled. As with the exterior, any NOS parts that were available were installed rather than cheap reproductions. Being behind the wheel of this car is a dream, and it has been a long time since we saw a vehicle that screamed time machine like this one does. Under the hood is a correct VW 1200cc engine. As can be expected from a car restored to this high degree of quality, it fires right up and runs as well as a Beetle can! The engine and engine bay continue the factory-correct theme with original parts and appearance. The engine is so clean you could almost fool yourself into thinking you were in a 1950s VW dealership looking at it! All correct parts and stickers appear to have been installed, and it continues to be apparent that not one corner was cut in this restoration. As a whole, we firmly believe that this is one of the nicest oval window Beetle ragtops available for sale. This is a no expenses spared restoration, done up just the way the car should be. Any discerning buyer would be hard pressed to find another Beetle of this quality and with this many original attribues painstakenly sought out and installed. If you\'re looking for the star car for your VW collection, this may just been the Beetle you need!
