BUILT; 16th November 1945
One of the first two Beetles into Australia.
In 1947, the Australian government imported two Beetles for evaluation as part of the war reparation scheme.
This is one one them - we are unaware of the fate of the other.
Built in November 1945, just two months after the end of WW ll, this is a very rare Typ/ Series 51. Based on the Kublewagen, the car is 75mm higher than standard and was built when the British army controlled the VW factory.
Finished in the original flat black, this early Beetle has just completed a full restoration performed by a highly regarded South Australian body specialist working with the original panels.
The engine is understood to be a 1946 build.
A rare opportunity to buy a genuine 1945 Typ 51 Beetle.
