VW Beetle 1303 for sale

The Beetle in general

The beetle was the first car produced by the German car maker Volkswagen, and was produced from 1938 to 2003. During this long period, a total of 21,529,464 copies were produced, making the beetle the car with the longest production time and biggest volume worldwide.

Until 2002, it also had the title of the car with the biggest sales under the same name, when it was overtaken by Volkswagen Golf.

The initial 1938 beetle belongs to a very small group of vehicles launched shortly before or after 2nd World War and which stayed competitive for many decades, this group including also the Cotroen 2CV, Mini, Fiat 500, Jeep and Land Rover.

The beetle was ranked 4th in a respective Car of the Century poll in 1999, behind Ford Model T, Mini and Citroen DS.

Apart from the company's various factories in Germany, Mexico and Brazil, the beetle was produced in many other countries, always under license from the mother company Volkswagen. In many cases there was full production, while in other there was only assembly line of imported parts or partly preassembled bodies, especially in right hand drive markets, such as Ireland, Tayland, Indonesia, South Africa and Australia.

It was produced in total 20 countries, another record, and in all continents except Antarctica.
