Did you buy this car in Alabama by chance???I saw one for sale in the same color and condition a few years ago. I have car number 337517 and it is an earlier version of this same car.I also have number 225744, which is an earlier car that has the first style dashboard in it and has a cloth 3-fold sunroof in it.If you have any questions about vws, feel free to ask.I have nearly one of every year offered to the states during the 1950's...

Nice early 1953 V.W., ---- take your time in restoring it and you'll be proud when it's done. I have a 1950 V.W. split window which still have the black ong pant on it and still running just fine. Good luck in restoring your "53".
