Year/Model: 1957 Volkswagen
Description:
VW Cabriolets were built in a separate plant by Karman. Volkswagen convertibles manufactured prior to 1958 seem to be the most valuable. They were renowned for build quality and such luxury features as a 3 layer sound deadening top. The 1954 update to a 1200cc 36 hp power plant resulted in a roadworthy car comfortable at US legal speeds. Volkswagen collector and expert, Tim Hayes, participated in this VWs refurbishment. His road test finds it to be smooth, responsive, and reliable. The seats and door panels were removed, cleaned and reinstalled. The fenders were detached, gaskets inspected, and minor paint imperfections on the undersurface addressed. Door gaskets were replaced. Hub caps were properly painted and replaced. New NOS intake and exhaust manifolds were obtained and installed. New Bosch spark plugs and plug wires were secured and installed as were points and a new distributor cap. The braking system was refurbished using seals, lines and shoes from OEM supplier ATE. This car is equipped with a Becker Hi Fidelity radio with an appropriate separate factory amplifier. Its Wolfsburg crest and steering wheel present beautifully and are thought to restore items original to the car. All four-side windows, the vent glass, and even the glass of the convertibles rear window is Sekurit.
