1958 VW Technical Poster

All through 1950s up to early 1960s Volkswagen published series of posters for use within VW Dealerships and Service Points. This example was found at a dealer in the US and dates from 1958 showing the dashboard after the oval window beetle and listing all the controls. Soon to be framed and on display in the new garage.
