Theory has it that the supply of and demand for a product determine its ultimate value on the auction block, and when you consider that a record 21, Volkswagen Beetles were sold globally between andit is remarkable that the ultimate people's car still has any value at all at auction. Prices however, are defying all the rules and the world's most produced car model is now fetching record prices and looks set to become a gold plated investment as a collector car. Incredibly clever design and mass manufacturing efficiencies propelled the Beetle to surpass the Ford Model T world record for production of a single automobile and fulfill all of its design objectives despite being masterminded by one of the great villains of the century of the automobile.

One of our favorite building projects is the Woody Wagon, a classic recreation of a surfer's woody, built on a standard Volkswagen Beetle. Project requires no welding or special tools and uses a premolded fibreglass hood kit available from several suppliers. A Bug from the early to mid-sixties is preferable, but anything but Super Beetles will work in a pinch. Makes a nice, tight little wagon, with lots of room; ours has been used for over 25 years and 60K miles.
The Beetle is so iconic it is recognized the moment it comes into view. But despite a car that was advertised for being the same, there's a hierarchy among these love bugs, and this Volkswagen Beetle is right on top. We're getting all sorts of attention on this one. Beetle aficionados cherish these years because of the craftsmanship that goes into the earlier cars, including the Wolfsburg crest on the front, "W" decklid, and the overall fit and finish.
