What an interesting and unusual car.

I've often wondered why the base model Beetles were usually grey. Was grey paint cheaper than using a colour finish to save costs, or was it just by keeping the colour options down that saved costs:?:



Probably a combination. And often (bigger) companies that had their own colours and logos who bought them, so the car would get another colour anyway.
August 55 T1- one of the first 56' (# 30).

Salut,
non, les STD Belges sont chromées... Là elle vient du fin fond de l'Allemagne...
Je n'ai pas encore toutes les pièces pour la restauration.
Greg.



Nice to know they can still be found sometimes in the back of beyond. C'est génial qu'on en trouve encore dans les terres profondes! Oui, biensûr, je n'avais pas bien regardé les poignées et pare chocs peints. Que te manque-t-il comme pièces?
