Cohort Pic(k) Of The Day: 1963 VW Beetle – Nice Patina

Today’s post is a ’63 Beetle 1200, with a nice amount of patina and ragtop sunroof, found in the UK by L. Seddon at the Cohort. This LHD Beetle looks like those I used to see in California back in the ’90s, and for all I know it may come from there. According to the Cohort poster, it was first registered in the UK in 2023, and the chrome bumpers suggest US origin.

Any other ideas about its origins?
