Product Description

Synopsis

The Beetle is unique. Many cars are more powerful, more comfortable, more economical and better suited to modern driving conditions, but without exception, none holds the same fascination as the Beetle. Robust engineering, classless status and depth of character made the Beetle one of the world's biggest-selling cars. And, just like the million people who bought new Beetles, today's classic car enthusiasts are taking these individualistic cars to their hearts in ever-increasing numbers all over the world. This addition to the "Original" restoration series documents and illustrates all the European-built production variants of the car from 1945 to 1980. The text is accompanied by photographs showing factory authenticity and every significant permutation of Beetle specification in detail. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
The book is fab with nice clear glossy photos. It is packed with information and is a must for any beetle lover. However, I do not think it is worth the price tag at all.

This was a great find for this book. eBay sells this book for over $40. I was very happy to find it here for half that price.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for all Beetle lovers 2 Sept. 2004
By ARJUNA MEDAGAMA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book seems to be the result of tedious and well conducted research in to the beetle's history. It provides an extremely useful chronological guide in to the car's evolution and gives important detail changes performed by Vollkswagen to the Beetle over the years. The high quality photographs employed are of the best quality that I have seen in any any automotive book or magazine.It is simply a book that must be read by all Beetle enthusiasts.

4.0 out of 5 stars NICE SURPRISE 6 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I HAD I VERY NICE SURPRISE WHEN I RECIBED THE ORIGINAL VW BEETLE BOOK. IT IS VERY GOOD ILUSTRATED, WHITH GOOD QUALITY, FULL COLOR PHOTOS. THE CARS IN THE PHOTOS ARE REALY NICE, IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITIONS. THE BOOK PRESENTS VERY USEFULL INFORMATION ABOUT THE EVOLUTION OF THE VW, INDICATING FOR EACH YEAR, SINCE 1945, THE MAIN CHANGES. IN RESUME THE BOOK LOOKS LIKE A BARGAIN BOOK, BUT HAS INFORATION LIKE A CONSULTING BOOK. I WILL RECOMEND THIS BOOK TO MY FRIENDS, THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN THE VW. ALSO I THINK THE BOOK USEFULL FOR PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THOSE INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS WHICH HAVE MADE HISTORY.
