VW Beetle - Original Survivor - 1973 1300cc For Sale
I am the 3rd registered owner.
I have owned this since 2013, When I got it it had been off the road for 17 years.
We took the body off and it had, both rear bumper mounts and rear valance, 2 rear wings, both rear body mounts, both heater channel bottoms, both front bumper mounts, spare wheel well and front valance along with lots of other repairs. The work was done to a very high standard.
In 2014 it passed its MOT after much body restoration, service parts and a brake rebuild. It has done very few miles since then. (Under 2000 miles)
The chassis and body are rock solid.
It has done just under 135000 miles from new and is completely stock and untouched.
I have the original handbook, service book etc The car had a reconditioned engine 35,000 miles ago.
The 1300 engine and gearbox are lovely.
The interior is stock.
The gutters are good.
The car has working heating which includes working heater vents on the screen!
Bodywork is tatty in places (door bottoms etc) but those who know Beetles will look and see exactly how good it is and see its future potential.
It is Kasan Red. The inner wings are shiny paint.
It had not been driven in 18 months until this week. I have just put 50 miles on it with no problems (other than a blocked idle jet which I cleared out).
Only selling due to divorce.
It gets Free Road tax and is MOT exempt due to its age, although I would recommend giving it a good looking over and service due to the amount of time it has been sitting.
Please only enquire if you appreciate a survivor Volkswagen in stock form.
I have lots of Photos of the cars intimate areas that i can send you. Just ask.
