1972 An Amazing Volkswagen Beetle 1300 with Only 53,459 Miles For Sale

https://www.kgfclassiccars.co.uk/details.php?cid=849
FOR SALE
An amazing Volkswagen Beetle 1300 with only 53,459 miles and full history.

EQUIPMENT
Chrome window trim, chrome bumpers, chrome wheel covers, running boards, horn pad with Wolfsburg crest, hazard lights, dash illumination adjustment, interior light, collapsible steering column, fuel gauge, assist straps, headlight flasher, bezel vents, sill vents, glove box, driverís door pocket, twin sunvisors, grab handle, coat hooks. Dealer options: Radiomobile push-button stereo.

EXTERIOR
The unmodified, unspoilt and preserved nature of this delightful Beetle 1300 is truly wonderful and fondly reminiscent of a far simpler motoring age. Finished in Volkswagen Kasan Red/Kasanrot, (Code L30B), the vibrant finish to the paintwork is superb with only very light imperfections consisting of touched in marks and thin paint on bonnet edges from years of overzealous polishing. All utterly insignificant. The factory panels are damage free and uniformly even and the doors shut with a reassuring thud. The underside is excellent and free from excess applied underseal. Originality seekers will delight at the original VW etched glass badges and inner door shut stickers. Even the octane sticker to the inside of the petrol flap remains fitted! All chrome bumpers and trim pieces are intact and boast a brilliant shine. A delightfully humble and unmolested example of a motoring icon.

INTERIOR
The original black leatherette interior is spotless with all seats and matching door cards fully intact and remarkably free from wear. The factory fitted padded steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest is pristine, as is all other fully functioning controls and switchgear, including the Radiomobile push-button stereo. The factory sticker to the inner glovebox lid remains and the headlining is clean, fully intact and displays only very light discolouration around the rear seams. The front luggage compartment displays factory plates and stickers and houses the original spare wheel still feeding the pneumatic washer system, a system sadly often removed in favour of an electric washer pump. Ten years ago, the previous long-term owner found a Two Shilling coin underneath the carpet dated near the cars production and sentiment/superstition has led him to insist it remained there when he sold the car!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The matching numbers standard air-cooled rear mounted engine produces 52bhp from its 1285cc displacement enabling a top speed of 78mph with the unmistakable Beetle engine note delightfully pronounced but completely unobtrusive. The engine bay is amazingly clean, exactly as Volkswagen intended and incredibly the original, yet now arguably primitive, Volkswagen diagnostics plug remains fitted! The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox works perfectly offering light and precise gear changes.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original pressed steel wheels are dressed in immaculate chrome half wheel covers and shod in branded 155 R15 tyres with excellent tread remaining. Dual circuit drums front and rear operate freely, offering modest yet perfectly adequate stopping power when compared to modern vehicles, exactly as they were made!

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on the 13th October 1972, the supplying Volkswagen Main Dealer was Walter Scott Ltd of Pavillion Road, London. This incredible Beetle 1300 has covered a genuine warranted 53,459 miles from new with just four former keepers. Only very rarely does a classic car come with such an amazing history file, which in this instance begins with the original service booklet containing the supplying dealer stamp plus a further 39 stamped entries from 1972 to 2017! Each entry records the date and mileage to fully verify the authenticity and illustrate the cars continual enjoyment throughout the last 46 years. Furthermore, a huge history folder is beautifully presented with many previous MOT certificates and specialist invoices for service and maintenance work, including a rebuild of the original Solex carburettor in 2016. A feature in Classsic Car Weekly dated March 2008 is full of glowing praise when it was advertised for sale at £5,995. All original handbooks, guides, warranty book and dealership literature have been kept along with two sets of keys and an original sales brochure. Even the VW Diagnosis Punch Card Booklet with the original build sticker is present!

A car that has thankfully evaded the modifiers, neglectful owners and scrappage schemes to now remain one of the best unmolested examples available. Appealing to the avid collector wanting a very special car with history file to match.

MOT September 2019, Tax exempt, HPI Clear.
