Why The Standard wheel on a deluxe car?
Apart from the Stance it looks an OK car,but with one pic who can say.
Standard split

Pre August '55 RHD Ovals are becoming very attractive – yes even to me – with their ribbed doors, chunky locks and split-window solidness. A great option to a RHD Split which unless converted is a rare beast indeed.

But why, oh why have so many of these cars been 'slammed' :evil:

IMHO it's The Emperors New Clothes Effect :lol: .
Nice car, judging by the solitary pic, spoilt by that stupid stance 😞 .

This car was in the For Sale area at Stanford Hall on Sunday. Lovely original interior and such an early UK car, but the bodywork is in a desperate state.

That's putting it mildly. I'm sure it had a £7500 price tag on it there, as well. Still, lots of people (mostly with the arse of their jeans hanging around their knees and facial piercings) were giving it 'much respect' for having a totally smashed in front valance, so I guess the massive patches of rot under the paint don't matter in 2010...

I had a quick look on Sunday as well, the owner appeared to be sleeping :!: in the car at the time so couldn't really look too closely :lol: .
Was a bit puzzled about the lack of the dash-mounted starter button though given that it's a '53, and was rather surprised about the tatty condition of it generally, especially with the current asking price.
Why fit a lowered beam etc when the bodywork's in a such a state?

The rat look is fine - but there must be limits to how far you can let a car deteriorate :evil:


The way to end a good day out with your Split is with an Ovaltine!

Sorry, but I looked at the poor thing at Stanford and frankly, it looked a bit if a heap.

It would have been a bit expensive at half that IMHO

To be fair, I have to agree. The front quarter panels were in an absolutely desperate state and the bodywork in general will need masses of attention to keep it alive in the coming years. I hope the seller gets what he is asking for it price-wise, but in my (very limited) experience of buying Beetles, I would imagine a price that is half of the current asking price would be 'about right'.

The owner kindly sent the body, chassis and engine numbers to me. The body has a '53 number which is a bit odd due to the '54 features.
