  • The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses vehicle just as Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government: to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” translated as the “Strength through Joy Car.” After WWII, the now British controlled VW Factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in VW producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported VW’s caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change America's fascination with the “Bug.” The 1957 Volkswagen Oval Window Beetle featured here is finished in gorgeous Agave Green with an impeccably kept original Red interior. gorgeous Prairie Beige with a beautiful red interior. This exceptional Beetle (manufactured during the last production year for the Oval Window) has been beautifully maintained and driven just 65,344 miles from new. Accompanying this investment-grade 1957 Volkswagen Oval Window Beetle is its owner’s manual, service records, warranty booklet, original tools, jack and much more. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the best original examples of a 1957 Volkswagen Oval Window Beetle on the market today. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com


    * Rates vary depending on year of car, length of term and credit score.
