Custom Volkswagen without Sunroof

The prime reason why Volkswagen is so popular among collectors is it’s colour and feature variations. A very less number of cars without sunroof variant were manufactured. The prime colour was blue and aqua. But later on they were manufactured in orange, green, copper, red and enamel green but the numbers were less and hence these cars become rare.

Most experts have the opinion that salmon and antifreeze coloured cars are rare and can fetch you good dollars but all of them unanimously agree to the fact that Blue Ed Shaver is the rarest and the most collectable of all. Rarely you will find these cars intact. Toy experts are of the have valued this car in the range of $4000


Cheetah’ Base Python HK

There is a history of why these cars are considered so valuable. This car is famous because of a naming snafu. This resembles a custom Dream Rod and was built in 1963. A very less number of these cars were manufactured primarily red in colour and with Cheetah name engraved on the base. But after that Bill Thomas of General motors raised a claim against the name, so this car was renamed Python.
