450389400 Volkswagen Beetle with oval rear screen and with “Auto-Porter” – single wheel trailer with luggage

This model looks a bit strange, This is a Beetle from 1954 but it shows “rheumatism-flaps” beside the A-pillars which were only fitted between 1951 and 1952 at the rear screen. Here someone responsible was in sleep.
