One of the finest examples of a Volkswagen Beetle is hitting the auction block later this month and not only is it in incredible condition, it's only got 56 miles on it. Yes, you heard correctly. This 1974 Bug has had only one owner by the name of Armando Sgroi, who purchased the car on January 23rd, 1974. 

As we've mentioned, the car was used very little and was discovered in a barn, as all great finds usually are, and has only been lightly recommissioned and even still has the original oil and the original tires. All the documentation including the original books and invoice come with the vehicle as well as the original tool kit. The car will go under the hammer on May 28th and is expected to sell for 35,000 - 40,000 Euros ($40-$45,000).
