It’s probably obvious that I’m a big fan of American Pickers and Mike Wolfe. I idolize his ability to find amazing cars that he gets at pretty good prices like his 62 Panel Van and his Von Dutch VW Motorcycle. But here it looks like one lucky person with some pretty deep pockets has a chance to buy a 1953 “Zwitter” VW Bug that was picked by Mike. A Zwitter is a Beetle manufactured between October 1952 thru March 10, 1953. The Beetle retained the rear window in two split halves, but had the newly redesigned dashboard more commonly seen in the Oval Rear Window Beetles thru the 1957 model year.
I’m honestly suprised that Mike Would sell this car as it seems perfect for his personal collection. If you recall we originally saw Mike post this about a year ago not long after he picked it.
