Alledgedly, it was the first beetle exported to Norway after the war.
The pic shows a tintop beetle with chrome bumpers and overiders, chrome hubcaps, door handles and hood handle; but no side trim.
Not being an expert on this era, I always assumed that exports had the side trim?
Can anyone enlighten me as to its model designation?
I'm curious and I would like to pass the info on to my FIL.

Deluxe models with white knobs, chromed accessories and hydraulic brakes came in mid-1949.
Running nifty since 1950… the King of Volkswagens:beer: Why not make friends with this famous little VW – he's on facebook!
Alledgedly its still around in a barn in my FIL's hometown!
He's going to look for it during the summer.
I'll keep you posted.
I think a trip up there will be necessary. Fancy a weekend of Split hunting in Scandanavia???!
