1964 BRAND­NEW OLD BEE­TLE

New Zealand Classic Car - - National And International News -

In Van­cou­ver, Canada, a ‘brand-new’ old VW has turned up. The orig­i­nal owner had bought the car as a spare but ob­vi­ously never needed it. The car had been sit­ting in stor­age for over 50 years, the orig­i­nal owner long gone. When the for­tu­nate new owner checked it out, he found that he had in­her­ited this vir­tu­ally brand-new Bee­tle, with its odome­ter tick­ing over from 22 to 23 miles as they shifted it out of stor­age. The car had been cov­ered, and so both in­te­rior and ex­te­rior were in as-new con­di­tion. It’s now for sale for al­most NZ$2M — mak­ing this car quite a long way from Hitler’s orig­i­nal in­ten­tion for the model.
