Oldest Beetle in SA nestled at refurbished AutoPavillion

Volkswagens automotive museum, AutoPavilion, has recently had an upgrade and one of its new displays is Jan the Beetle. Jan was built on Wednesday, 14 September 1949 in the original Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg.

That is very cool, Wonder if the "brand-new 1300" beetle is also still around.
