Hello,
I am wondering if there are beetles out there that are longer continously registered than my 49 split.
The car was first registred on 21st of October 1949 and always stayed registered and driving since then.
I bought the car last month from her second owner, who has bought her in September 1950 and has always driven her since then!
The car is still registered today and can be driven.

Looking forward to your responses.:wink:

Hi Dirk!
I think one of the oldest and longest registrated car ist the car from Otto Weymann. The car type 51 is from 1942 and i think it's registrated since this time.

Otto Weyman's car is not a '42. The chassis is '42, body is '49.
47 Beetle, 56 UK Karmann Cabriolet, 56 UK Beetle, 57 UK Type 2, 59 UK Beetle, 66 UK Fastback.

As far as the registration authorities are concerned the chassis gives the year of the car. So, Otto's is a 1942 VW[-x

That will take some beating:wink:

Hello Guys,

I know there are many beetles driving around,that are older than mine.
What I am looking for is the oldest beetle, that has continously been registred from the first day of it's "life".

My car has been registered on 21 october 1949 and has moved to it's second owner in September 1950. Since October 1949 it has never been out of service. So until today this car is continously registered (meaning: having a licence / numberplate) and driving for over 60 years.
So if you know about a beetle, that has been registered for traffic before 21st of October 1949 and has also continously been driven (registered with a license plate
please let me know.

Thanks!
Aircooled greetings
Dirk

If you can save the image as a jpeg under 1mb you should be able to upload it to the forum okay:o

Enjoy 😎

P.S.: I also got the original 16 inch wheels and the ribbed bumpers with the car.
I am looking for a 49 standard steering wheel and the original 49 only split taillights.
If you have something, please let me know.

Hey Dirk, thanks for posting the pictures, a Standard Model too:beer:

Love the colour, the left-right designed semaphores have survived with all that constant use – probably due to having later style signals fitted:o

Intrigued by the trim having been added to the rear window surrounds.

It would be nice to see some of the interior 8)

How many miles-kms has the car done :?:

My old split-window Beetle 'Rattletrap' (in this forum) although not constantly registered and in use like yours, has covered a claimed excess of 860,000 miles ( = over 32 times around the planet :shock: )
