This is not a factory history or “how-to” book, rather it is a detailed look at the changes as they occurred in the areas of body, chassis, trim and interior on these highly desirable cars. It is a collection of facts and figures accumulated with the help of Bug experts across the country, that allows a potential buyer, concours entrant or enthusiast of the marque to determine the authenticity of any 1949 to 1959 sedan or cabriolet. Virtually every component is clearly described and photographed. Four years of research and over 450 photos and illustrations make other publications obsolete. Also included is an accurate chassis number chart and a very detailed color and upholstery listing. The book is organized in a logical front to back, system by system style, with detailed index. The VW Beetle 1949 – 1959 is a pleasure to read and to use.
