A recently restored 66 Beetle, with factory sunroof and high performance 100hp engine.

This car has come to us via a regular source,a discerning collector,highly respected in the automotive world, who has an eclectic collection of design classics.

This rare sunroof Beetle was first registered in 1966. As a rust-free example it was imported from the dry state of California in 2013, and subsequently registered for UK road use. Since that time the car has undergone a comprehensive amount of mechanical and cosmetic restorative work to make it the gleaming example you see today. It now presents an excellent opportunity to purchase one of the all time classic car icons in first-rate condition. Fully restored and upgraded in the most tasteful ways this Beetle is more than ready to be driven and enjoyed.

This exceptional example is equipped with a Factory sunroof, High performance 1776cc engine, Twin Weber carburettors, Dual circuit brakes with front disc conversion, Adjustable front suspension, Stainless steel exhaust system, EMPI Fuchs style alloy wheels in chrome, Porsche wheel centre caps, 12 Volt alternator conversion, Headlamp grilles, Door mirrors, Sports bucket seats in leather, Rosewood sports steering wheel, Additional dash gauges, EMPI short shift gear stick with polished gear knob, RetroSound stereo with auxiliary input, Pioneer speakers front and rear, Front seat belts, Pop-out rear windows, Carpet overmats, Matching Spare wheel.

Having been treated to a full restoration this rare factory sunroof Beetle looks magnificent in the classic combo of black with red upholstery. The lustrous paintwork is perfectly accented by striking 911 style wheels and plentiful chrome detailing, all of which presents impeccably. The panels are lovely and straight along both sides with even gaps to report, and there are no unsightly marks to any of the bodywork or trim. Chrome still features in all the right places and the additional headlight grilles look tremendous.

Originating from the dry US state of California this example has never suffered from any of the common rust issues normally found on Beetles of this vintage. The underside is a real treat for the enthusiast with common weak spots such as the heater channels and floor pans in excellent corrosion-free condition; photos are available upon request.

The gorgeous cabin retains a wealth of period charm while boasting upgraded features to include leather bucket seats, a rosewood steering wheel, a modern vintage-style radio, and a four-speaker sound system. With few miles covered since restoration the upholstery presents like new front and rear; the same is true of the carpets, door cards, switchgear, and gauges. Pleasingly the original sunroof operates exactly as intended and really adds to the sense of occasion when open. Under the bonnet youll find a freshly carpeted luggage area housing a pristine alloy spare wheel.

The Beetle sports an uprated 1776cc air-cooled engine boasting a full flow oil system, bolt-up rocker shafts, ported heads, a performance camshaft, and dual Weber 40 carbs giving an impressive 100hp. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a short-shift manual transmission and performance clutch. The stainless steel exhaust is merged to ease the flow of exhaust gases and prevent power loss regardless of the RPM. All in all this is one excellent driver!

Filling those voluptuous arches is a set of 15-inch Fuchs style alloys in chrome; a matching spare can be found under the bonnet. The finish is perfect throughout, the wheels having seen little use since fitting. The same is true of the tyres, which are very much unworn. As part of the restorative work the brakes were upgraded to a dual circuit system, and discs were fitted at the front.

As with all our cars, we can offer part exchange , competitive finance deals, and delivery .

We appreciate that since the Coronovirus pandemic,it may now be difficult to come and view our cars, so we would be happy to offer a walk round video for all our stock, if required, although we can make the cars accessible if we observe strict social distancing protocols.

I am lucky that I live and work in the same place , so I have full access to our vehicles. I will happliy provide an honest description for our cars, and we can still arrange delivery at the moment. I've been in the motor trade for over 30 years, and feel like i'm fully qualified to provide an honest and accurate accessment, plus we only deal in quality vehicles here.

We have also been paranoid about cleanliness here, to the humour of others at times , and every car, key set , door handle,switch,know etc etc is thoroughly wiped.

Please contract Andrew or email via our website, if you require more information
