Yep, the car was exported to the US in 1980. It was a British forces serviceman car imported to the UK when new in 1947 (civilian spec I believe). It was owned by Paul Norman in Northampton in 1980 when exported to the US. Very nice car and an original 'UK' one to boot! George- buy it!

If you do buy it George, paint it semi-matt, your last '47 was way too shiny[-x

Here we go again...another one of his tactless subjective comments. You forget that the proud owner of this lovely car is on this thread.

I am aware of that. It's a fantastic car – I'd love it:beer:

BUT, I would repaint it semi-matt. The 1940's was a very austere period. These cars were usually finished in a cheap non-glossy paint.

Also the Standard models that followed look far better in semi-matt. Too many have been ruined being repainted in modern glossy 2-pack paint:evil:

A certain sunroof Standard is far too shiny:evil:

Yes, it really is the same car. I really can't see that happening to such a very good 40s Beetle here in the UK, but then again…:evil:

However, they've got the paint finish about right – no glossy cr*p. Someone get it back here to the UK:shock:

The decrepit old gits know how a vintage VW looks best :twisted:

Why do that to a really nice '47, when there's so much later stuff to mess with :?

Go on John - put your money where your mouth is and do it.

Those Fuchs wheels really don´t look good on that car. Probably because of the flat paint job.

Fuchs wheels look okay on a really ratty old Beetle, not on this semi-matt jewell.:wink:

I'd love to have the car and restore her dignity 😮
