We’re delighted to be offering a rare and difficult to find set of 2 suitcases that were designed in the 1960’s as a custom set for the owner’s Volkswagen Beetle car. These were made in the US, they were not made by VW themselves. I show the stock photo to give you an idea of where it was suggested that the suitcases be placed; our set is NOT the set in the photo, it was custom designed. Interesting even if you do not own a Bug; these are high quality vintage suitcases that look great on their own.
Please take the measurements and compare to your own car to be confident they will fit if you want to use in your car; we are not certain which exact models they work in.
Made by Warren, brown leather outside.
Measure 32″ x 16-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ each
Original keys and lock which we did not try.
Excellent overall condition except leather has been in storage for decades with some light scuffs on outside and you might want to wipe down with leather cleaner. Inside is very clean with minimum wear, slightly dusty as well but nothing that detracts.
Classy and Classic!
From our research we have found information that these were designed to individually be put under the front hood, OR stored together behind the seat as shown in last photo.
I’ve been told as well that they fit best in a 1962-1965 VW Beetle but you can check the measurements and see if they work for you!
Hard to find, great to have 2 together. Each has a monogram on the side; two different styles, may be that one is for the lady and he other for the gent! Either way, they are wider and thinner than traditional suitcases.
