This 1958 La Dawri Del Mar is mounted on a 1958 Volkswagen Beetle chassis. The is a VIN and the title work is beginning soon. The engine does not run. This vehicle is a project that cannot be driven home.
Interesting tidbit: The Del Mar was a 1958 offering from LaDawri. People bought the body kits in 1958. The donor car is a 1958 Volkswagen Beetle as verified by the VIN, the engine, pan, etc. Even the rear portion of the body is still visible in the engine compartment. In the 1970’s we bought old Volkswagens for $50 and put cool bodies on them. In this case, it is our opinion that someone purchased a new 1958 VW and had this body installed. They are perfectly matched. LaDawri sought to provide bodies for this exact wheelbase. This may have been a factory built “proof of concept” exercise.
