1968 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 82000 Miles For Sale

Although designed in the 1930s, the Beetle was only produced in significant numbers from 1945 on, when the model, called the Volkswagen Type 1, and marketed simply as the Volkswagen. Later models were designated Volkswagen 1200, 1300, 1500, 1302 or 1303, the former three indicating engine displacement, the latter two derived from the type number. The model became widely known in its home country as the Käfer, German for "beetle", and was later marketed as such in Germany, and as the Volkswagen in other countries. It ultimately gave rise to variants, including the Karmann Ghia and Type 2. The Beetle marked a significant trend, led by Volkswagen, Fiat, and Renault, whereby the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout increased from 2.6 percent of continental Western Europe's car production in 1946 to 26.6 percent in 1956. In the 1999 Car of the Century competition, to determine the world's most influential car in the 20th century, the Type 1 came fourth, after the Ford Model T, the Mini, and the Citroën DS. The vendor tells us that a previous fastidious owner ensured all work undertaken was to a high standard. The car has a new clutch, shock absorbers, ball joints, drive shaft boots, and ignition system. The body is said to be solid, and the interior is bright red, and very clean. The engine bay is described as tidy. The car has only had 4 former keepers, and is supplied with "service card" with stamps dated from 1968. A practical usable classic with a massive following.
