1960s VW 'Peace Beetle'Car_PeaceBeetle_Teal_14x11 $44
Our 1960s Volkswagen 'Peace Beetle' art print celebrates one of the most recognizable cars of the 20th century. The originating concept behind Volkswagen (German for 'the people's car'), was to build a car affordable and practical enough for common people to own. The first 'bugs' were designed and developed in the 1930s by the Porche company. Post-WWII, production took off and the design remained largely unchanged until production was halted in 2003.
The Inspiration behind our 1960s Volkswagen 'Peace Beetle' Art Print
Over 23 million Beetle's were produced over a 65 year period. Production peaked in the 1960s and the car became somewhat synonymous with the hippie and peace movements of the time. The model featured in this print, minus the big peace symbol is a replica of my sister's first car. I'll always remember the unique sound of its air-cooled engine purring up the driveway.
If you're a classic car buff fan or simply a fan of retro-inspired art, this print, along with others in our eclectic cars series will make a great addition to your collection.
