VOLKSWAGEN 1131cc STANDARD
The now familiar formula of rear-mounted air-cooled flat-four engine and all-torsion-bar springing; first Beetle into Britain though not many sold, and official imports don't begin till mid-'53 . Minimal brightwork, no synchromesh, and cable-operated mechanical brakes. All with divided rear windows. 16ins wheels to October '52, 15ins thereafter. Curiosity value.
