Description of 1957 Volkswagen Beetle - Classic

I have a 1958(1957 production date, but big rear window) semaphore Beetle for sale, bill of sale only. The car was purchased out of a shipping container that was bought at auction. When I got the car all fluids were drained and car had been prepped for shipping. From the title searches Ive had done I don't think the car was ever registered in the US. I will provide a bill of sale with the car and you should be able to get a title in your state. The engine runs but is out of a 1959, the transmission is unknown condition. Body and chassis numbers do match. At some point in the cars life it was hit in the right front corner and not repaired very well. The inner panel needs changed, the front apron needs repaired or replaced, the rear apron needs repaired or replaced, and the right door is off a newer car so the door handle is wrong. All the fenders need repaired or replaced, but I do still have all the parts I removed. There are several dents in the roof that will need to be fixed, and the hood has the typical crack that has been repaired poorly, but otherwise its a good restoration candidate. The front body tag has the following numbers on it 1696037 1957 78686 the tunnel is stamped 1696037.
