1958 VW Beetle. Original matching chassis, body, axle, engine and original UK registration number car.
Left the Wolfsburg factory in November 1958 spent most of its earlier life in and around Kent.
Was expertly restored in the mid 90's by Chris Clarke of Peppercorn fame and magazine featured at that time.
Pictures, magazines and features come with the car as does all the original paperwork and log book.
His superb restoration 30 years ago still stands the test of time and was then dry barn stored until 2011 when it was recommissioned for use.
I purchased the car in February 2014 where it undertook bright work refurbishment, a complete new period correct interior unique to the 58/59 cars and various mechanical fixes with new crossply tyres, brakes, shock absorbers etc all to keep it as near to stock as possible.
I rebuilt the original 30hp engine with genuine parts in 2018 due to burnt exhaust valves.
It has period correct electric windscreen washers, dehne fuel guage and sender, VW parcel shelf with fuel tap extension, blaupunkt radio, windscreen demisters and a extremely rare genuine Petri horn ring steering wheel.
Still running 6 volts the car has successfully tackled the Furka and Splugen Passes in the Alps with a euro trip to Northern Italy in 2015 the Scottish Highlands in 2016 and Spanish Pyrenees mountains in 2017 all without any issues.
The car is finished in L14 Reseda / Mignonette Green
