1958 Euro Beetle "Raggedy Anne"

Post by Attorney Isaiah Loophole on Sun Oct 15, 2017 9:43 pm

I picked this car up a few months back with the thought of just parting the car as I need parts for my 59.  I will have to double check but I am pretty sure this is a early August 57 built beetle. In other words one of the first big back window cars after ovals. I just couldn't bring myself to pulling it apart without attempting to fix it.  At some point in the last 25 years the car was pulled off the road and pulled apart for a resto of some sort and a tree/tree limb fell on the roof.  Then I guess it sat outside because it has some weird seam rust here and there.  The tree mangled the roof passenger door, passenger a pillar and driver rear pillar around the rear window.

Yesterday with the help of some great friends we were able to cut the mangled roof off and beat the pillars into something more usable and graft a ragtop roof clip on!

Can't wait to see the pictures. Good to hear it's not going to be parted out.
