Cool vintage air cooled VWs were designed to be easy to manufacture.  That makes them easy-ish to restore.  When painting an early Volkswagen everything gets the same color paint.  More costly cars of the era often had multiple colors; one for the dash, one for the interior, one for the firewall.  But not the people’s car, it was all one color.  Load your gun and go, and go, and go.

When restoring vintage cars a guy will block sand the body to prepare it for paint to remove all of the high spots.  That isn’t the case with a classic Volkswagen restoration because the whole car is a high spot!  So although air cooled VWs are small, they are as much work as a much larger car.
