April 1951-Oktober 1952 or 1951-52 for short

(It's a 'Brezelkäfer', or 'Pretzel Beetle', with the telltale 'Rheumaklappen' January 1951, windscreen surrounding April 1951, doesn't have the new items of the 'Zwitter' like bumpers, horn grilles, vent windows)

sometimes customers removed rear window support making an Ovali out of the Brezelkäfer just like owners of Golf 3 wish to upgrade to Golf 4 the face of it.

Yes, I remember seeing the ads for kits making Splitties look like Ovalies, and also for the later 1958+ rear windows. If only I had known then what I would be wasting my time doing many years later....

This one still has the centerpiece, please take a good look at the main picture, you can just see the lower part.

To the Admin who gave the car the name 'Brezelkäfer', it was just a nickname, by the look of the rear window, which I used to date the car. It could rather be replaced by 'Export' - VW Limousine Export.
