The VW Autoist, January 1963
The cover of the January 1963 issue of The VW Autoist, the newsletter of the Volkswagen Club of America, featured a VW 1500 being unloaded from a ship at the port of Toronto in late 1962. A number of VW 1500 notchbacks and even a few Variants can be seen in the sea of unloaded VW Beetles below. Early Variants were produced in relatively low numbers and are very scarce today.
This particular copy of The Autoist once belonged to automotive writer Dan Post, author of the book Volkswagen: Nine Lives Later.
