Volkswagen T1

car description

There are 5053 Typ 11s sold in Italy in 1961, the double of those sold in 1960. They will quadruple in 1962 ...
With these premises begins the story of our MY 1961 "Beetle" ordered in March 1961 by a Councilor of the City of Formigine (MO). Modena is the land of engines and sports cars such as Ferrari. It may be for this desire to identify itself in this world, that the car was ordered by Ruby Red (L456). The car was produced in May 1961 and marked in the beginning of June. The historic coincidence that, on the very days when the TYP 11 Ruby Red was scheduled, Maranello would be featured on major Ferrari, such as a 250 SWB and later a 250 GT Drogo. Our 113 Exports with high and low utilization remain in the family until the second half of the 90's when moving to Tuscany where it is used without special care, always with its periodic revision but without the passion it deserves . The picture of the discovery by the President of the Volkswagen Club of Italy is emblematic of the careless conditions in which the medium, "particular", for the year, the plaques and the Italian documents of first registration would have deserved. A complete restoration work was then carried out, documented by photographs of the various phases, where only original Volkswagen spare parts were used. Lastly, the interior decoration has now also been considered, which is now presented in their particular shape (for the year) in the highest spelndore. The car has been equipped with various accessories of the era that today can make you smile, but that was then the extra something that distinguished one car from another. The restoration was completed with a refurbished engine and its ASI Targa Gold homologation. There is also the AutoMuseum Volkswagen Certificate. Of the 5053 specimens sold in Italy in 1961, few remained, even less those with original plates, even less, less those with original documents. Difficult then find the original spare parts branded at the time. We can therefore say that the proposed vehicle is therefore unique in its kind and if the magazine Super VW Magazine No. 269 has dedicated 6 pages with cover on the cover, the car has won three International Contests, the quality and rarity of the item is unique And unrepeatable. Obviously such peculiarities have a cost that if you want to be recognized.
