I don't think there are any. They only made about 700 of them from 1949 - 1953 so it's very unlikely that even one of them somehow ended up in India.

Looks like No one is spotting any different bugs or buses.. Have the VW's gone into hiding? This one was posted in this very thread earlier here..

This is not a VW Beetle.

This is a Avelar Beetle

I had seen this on my last visit to Goa, Belongs to someone at Altino hills.

Why is this beetle not a VW beetle??
Was it not manufactured by VW ? or the fault lies in the fact it was restored by the famous Avelar?
I did not know till date that beetles were also nomenclatured based on the restorer (avelar,anoop,etc)

Avelar stays in Altinho. And the car is very much in Goa.

Here's a "sweet" VW I saw here in Calcutta at Bumpu's Works.
My niece is a VW lover and had one like this, almost the same girly colour in Ottawa Canada.
