WOw, nice car, Is that a new one? :lol:

Congrats to you, it seems that a handicap is not always negative.
After you went blind, i guess your eyes are wide open now.:shock:

Looks great, and from the few I've seen and turned down, no , they're not all rust free. As soon as the underseal is breached, the rot sets in. Many Swedish cars seem to go first at the front bulkhead outer corners letting water into the front of the channels. I've seen 4 like this in the last few weeks.

Out of interest, where did you see it advertised?

it was on the samba for around £3,400 or so, came on ebay someone won it did not pay i offered £2,600 plus it cost me £250 for the transport from devon, the pan is a nice shiny black once you heat up and scrape the underseal off, i took some pictures of the pan but they have not come out very clear,i did buy it on the day when the banks were collapsing an everything was going into total meltdown i think thats why nobody else was interested.

Congratulations - I think I remember seeing that car but it was too far (7 hours) from me to view on ebay. Well done. I think you've got an absolute bargain there - there are plenty of rotten or rotting cars out there for much more money.

I hope to have an Oval myself as soon as the right car comes along at the right price.

Congratulations! :beer: Looks like a really good car! Nice not very common colour too.

I have removed underseal from a few of ours now including our splits and the paint is better in the arches than on top. But as Last Triumph says as soon as it is exposed it will start to rot like a uk car in our soggy climate 😞
I gave my 50 its first year in paint underneath because it looks so nice, but will be por15'ing the pan and clear waxoyling everywhere else next year. I am doing O's 50 right now. Ugly but I would rather they stay without rot than for looks as we will never show any of ours so it does'nt matter to us.

this one was built on the 18th march 1957, there are a few things i would like to know, there is red around the side windows and around the handle on the doors, does this mean it had the optional red leather style interior originaly as the front seats dont match the rears , the door cards look a lot more worn out than other parts of the car would suggest, when vw s were sold in sweden new why were they left hand drive when up till the late sixties the swedes were on the same side of the road as the uk, and why is the speedo in mph and not kph, heres a few more pics.  oval 2 001.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 002.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 003.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 007.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 009.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 010.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 011.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 012.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 016.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 019.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 013.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 014.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  oval 2 017.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.
