Up for sale is this extremely rare and desirable February of 1952 Standard Split Window Beetle. It features a numbers matching body, pan, and 25hp engine (Engine# 10406232). At some point someone put 36hp engine tin on the motor*. The Standard beetle was never officially sold in the US and come with some unique features such as one piece windows, cable operated brakes, 16” wheels, no radio, partial headliner, and a basic steering wheel. This Standard is still running its original 6v system and has working headlights, tail lights, 1 semaphore (drivers side) license plate light, speedometer, and odometer. The cable brakes are in very good working order. The motor starts well with a little choke, and holds a low idle quickly. The non-synchronized gearbox is just as terrifying as I’m sure it was in 1952, but once you get the hang of the gearshifts it’s extremely satisfying! Goes into all 4 gears and reverse exactly as it should. I have personally driven this car many times and it’s an absolute delight! This standard was restored sometime in the 90’s and does show signs of age, but overall is extremely presentable! The cloth interior is very nice. Original headliner in-tact and looks extra cool. The pan has received pan halves at some point and a fair share of under coating. No soft spots in the pan anywhere. VERY solid. All of the glass (except the rear windows) are original big logo Sekurit including the windshield! The car just received a new 6v battery and a carb adjustment. Road or show ready just like it, without question. If someone wanted to take it to the next level it wouldn’t need much! Please call or e-mail with any questions. International buyers welcome.
