Well obviously Standard ragtops by definition are rarer than Deluxes (if you had more to spend buying a VW why would you want the bare-bones Standard?). Though I'm amazed how often a Standard ragtop comes up. I've known of four, even a RHD one.:smile:

I have an August 1952 11E model and I found very little on the net about them.

They were used for the military and the German Police. I wish someone would find and old military record book that had the location and unit of all military Volkswagens.

I have a '51 11E Standard Sunroof. They are indeed very rare cars.
