Here is my stunning 1968 VW beetle. I have known this car since I was a young boy and have watched her be transformed over thirty years. I have owned her since 2012 purchasing it from the previous owner(friend of the family) who purchased it in 1983. He used it for a few years before taking it off the road to restore, and not returning to the road until 2008. This beetle has been garaged since 1983, and hasn’t been left out in the rain since it was taken off the road in the late eighties.
While off the road my friend went to town on her with an open cheque book and and an unlimited amount of time.
Here are some of the new parts added while being rebuilt:
1700cc big bore engine
Weber twin choke carb
12V Bosch alternator
Lots of shiny tin wear
Front brake discs
Fibre glass wide wings
Five spoke Revolution wheels(colour coded)
Bespoke handmade wooden running boards
Complete custom interior including Huntmaster seats
Full Respray... I have since treated her to a fresh bare metal respray-2015
The list goes on... it’s late and I’m tired.
There are lots of receipts dating back to the 80’s, including my friends sales receipt back in 1983 for £250.
The only reason he sold the car to me in 2012 was because he had reached his mid seventies and felt too old for it. The only reason for me selling is lack of space and time. She covered less than 100 miles during her last MOT period. She comes with an MOT valid to July 2019 and has covered less than 200 miles since July 2018.
This car has done 94000 miles but has covered less than 3000 miles since being put back on the road in 2008
There is lots I have missed so feel free to call and ask. Serious buyers call.... time wasters message.
