This is the Volkswagen that has won world fame in a few short years. Those who own one claim that it is the most sensible thing on wheels. Its smart appearance and practical European lines charm the eye. It is powered by what people say is the best designed and most reliable engine within its class ever built. It is a car that will put money in the bank for you. It gives a maximum of performance for a minimum of outlay and is sparing of every cent spent on it.
  The vent wings in the windows pivot to give the exact amount of draftless fresh air desired.

The Standard and the De Luxe Sedans both have a handsome brilliant finish, a remarkably fast get away, comfortable seats for both driver and passengers that were specially designed for tireless long-distance driving, finger-tip steering and that astounding, fast little engine which will give you 38 miles per gallon (Imp.). In addition to all these and other famous Volkswagen features, the De Luxe Sedan has more chromium plating, richer upholstery, hydraulic brakes and ultramodern synchromesh drive.
  The built-in heater furnished as a standard accessory, at no extra cost, can also be regulated to give the exact amount of heat desired.

If the sun suddenly bursts through the clouds while you are driving and you want to drink in the sunshine, just reach up with one hand - there is no need to slow down, even if you are doing 65 m.p.h. - and flick the top back. You can adjust the opening as you see fit from a crack to all the way back. The Volkswagen is full of such practical features.

lf you drive a Volkswagen Convertible, you will always look tanned and healthy as if you just got back from a long vacation. With the top down you get full benefit of every ray of sunshine. With the top up in cold or bad weather you are just as snug and warm in your Convertible as you would be in a Sedan. You will fall in love with the Volkswagen Convertible when you see its smart appearance and graceful European lines. The Volkswagen Convertible is a favorite with the ladies.
