1956 Volkswagen Oval Bug

This 1956 Coral Red Oval Window Bug is finished and heading back home to the owner. We got more and more excited as we heard stories of adventures in the Beetle, from this being his car in high school, to going on his first date with his future wife, to their kids growing up riding in the back seat. There was even a time he had to remove the passenger seat and sit in the back seat because he broke his leg but still had to go to work. It is amazing that we were able to play a part in the history of this beloved Beetle with performing its restoration, and we are very sad it is leaving our shop.
