Hi all
 Grail of “Shed finds”
1955-6 West Oval window beetle MKA built with West german Kit Body number MKA17220 -indicates first year of sale for VW in AustraliaThis is the most complete and best condition Oval restoreer I’ve seen in 30 odd years
The body can only be described as Patina heavenThe body would be a case of clean and preservewith some very minor repairs (not rust) to front clip and 2 guards or if you’re up for a full restoration then it’s the perfect place to start
I can find No evidence of any previous repair work at all- entire body appears to be completely original with all window Sills inc Oval window in perfect condition, original headlight buckets in perfect conditionNo rust evident on any of the guard tape areasAppears to be missing Semaphores (has crudely attached “indicators” in place
The 36 Horse engine is absolutely complete and unmolested and was running when parked in 1980 (currently not turning over)All tinware, factory air cleaner etc is all there
The interior whilst requiring work has all original seats and trims only thing that appears to be missing is horn button and gear shift knob no rats nest or chook poo on this baby
Even the front tyre well Notorious for rusting has a tiny amount (2-3 10c piece sections of spider web rust)
The main work will be in the front lower quarters requiring plating/welding in the foot well
I am firmly of the belief that the original pan is good enough to be wire brushed, rust converted and sealed for use
All glass except for 1 rear quarter is included and originalBoth original headlightsAll 5 original wheelsMatching original numbers
This car is an amazing prospect for someone who wants an original example of the first series ofAustralian delivered VW beetle and an amazing piece of VW history
Car is located In Narangba QLD.. delivery Austwide can be arrangedfurther pics/video etc available
